Yanchep National Park.. Nyanyi-Yandjip.

 

Early yesterday morning we set of for what was my first hike since I injured my hamstring seven weeks ago. We arrived in the Yanchep National Park just after sun-up on the perfect day for a hike, mostly cloudy with small bursts of sunshine and even a few drops of rain. In retrospect the 11 km hike may have been a stretch for my first for a while, and although around the 9 km mark I got a bit tetchy much to the amusement of Aimee and P, I was pretty pleased at making the whole distance..

Described as moderate in difficulty there were certain challenges. The terrain varied from easy, as in the shots below...

To the many rocky stretches, mostly on the inclines and declines of the trail, where you really had to watch where you put your feet..

Then there were the under, over or around situations below :) Large parts of the park are still recovering from summer bush fires last year, as you can see the regeneration is coming along nicely. There was a reason for doing this particular trail, one of many in the National Park, will tell you about that tomorrow. Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  4. Love all these pictures, they really tell the story of your hike. I hope the sloping parts weren't too steep. I find the hardest part is going down hill, it always makes my left knee hurt but uphill is no problem. And going downhill is hard on the toes, you sort of slide into the end of the boot. I lost a couple of toenails that way! But they grew back, phew!

  6. Grace, that looks like a rough, long trail especially as you are still recovering from your injury. You were able to take fine photos. If you are like me, a photo is a perfect reason to pause and rest. Hope you had no long term pain from this walk.

  11. YAY, well done, Grace! After I was sick it took me 45 minutes for some tiny 2 km... on the street! (Usually 13-15 minutes depending on the red lights) - so... YAY! And rain, awww.
    But... can you tell me if P in this park just fooled me or did the tiny blue bird 🐦exist and I just failed to see it? Drives me nuts, I looked so hard! And it always makes me laugh as I KNEW the The Simpsons-episode P showed me in the Pub there, LOL. Flanders and his to-be-girlfriend, it was. 😁

  12. I'm happy you got out to do it. I think I probably would've been able to handle it but would've needed good walking shoes.

  17. Everything is growing back quickly there. It is hard to believe the fire was only last year.

    Well done for tackling 11k coming off an injury!
