Floodwaters : December 14

Water, water everywhere – after a long dry spell, the North-east had more than its share of rainfall in the lead up to this walk.

There was so much water (well over 100mm in most of the North-east) that the Hume Freeway was cut in several place to the north of Wangaratta, and the planned walk for December 14 (the White-Box Walk in Chiltern-Mount Pilot NP) had to be cancelled.

Alternative venues (such as those in the Warby Ranges and near Beechworth) were considered, but access seemed to be a problem where ever we thought of going.

Hopefully, we can reschedule this popular walk to another date in 2019.
