Another up and at 'em early morning on Sunday to get to John Forrest National Park and walk the heritage trail. It's always a good idea, in fact essential if you do the whole circuit, to sign in with the ranger.. just in case! Despite difficult conditions, experienced in all national forests.. drought, die-back, government funding cut-backs, fires (often deliberate) etc. it's still a beautiful expression of our unique Australian vegetation, plus a few colourful intruders :) and a pleasure to walk.. on Sunday our trail would lead us to Hovea Falls.
This was a bit interesting.. below, growing on a Jarrah tree, a 'burl'! Likened to a cancerous growth, it can be cut off without damaging the tree and is highly valued by carpenters for the striking wood grain and colours, each one unique!
Horse trails, walk trails, and at one point a cyclist went whizzing by :)
If a tree falls down in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
Banks of wild freesias, heavenly perfume!
.... and there in the distance Hovea Falls, our destination.. where I had a bit of a 'thing' :) show you more tomorrow. Hope your week is off to a good start, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..
