Loggers Lane / Friends Loop : August 22

It wasn’t springtime, but the wattles were in bloom, and the creeks were running nicely for this 12km walk in the Warby Ranges.

On this glorious sunny day, ten walkers set out from the Loggers Lane ‘Car Park’ at the corner of Gerretts Road, and made their way to Taylors Lane, and then Wenhams Camp for lunch.

On the way we enjoyed great views of the snow covered alpine area, several sightings of kangaroos, and a pod of gang-gang cockatoos.

After lunch, we took some of the unmarked trails that lead back towards Loggers Lane, enjoying yet more great views of the alpine ranges, and more sightings of red and grey kangaroos from a small granite peak called Robertson’s Dome.

The grass-trees were looking very prosperous in their rock studded gardens, and various types of orchids were just starting to come into bloom.

Overall, a very enjoyable walk, with a good crew.
