Sundays in my City #65 – A walk in the bush

26 Jun

I have gone from not having any photos to post for Sundays in my City to having way too many.

Since my interpretation of Sundays in my City is to highlight a geographical area rather than the actual events of the Sunday, this weeks installment is of the area I explored as a part of my training.  Did I mention that this time in 2 weeks I will actually be on the Kokoda Track again?  I can’t wait!  In the meantime, here are photos from yesterdays training in Werribee Gorge where we hiked for 17km, up and down giant hills, through slushy mud, along rock faces and beside the river.

Starting Out for the Island (the hill in the background is called the Island)

Around and Up, and Up and still more Up

At the Bottom of the Gorge

A resting place for lunch

I really must say that I am so lucky to be able to say that a day spent walking through some amazing bush land with fantastic people can be considered work!

 Head over to Unknown Mami and check out some of the adventures others have had during their Sundays in my City.

    These are great photos. I especially like the second to last one. It’s spectacular.

    That view down into the gorge – – – impressive.

    You’ve inspitred me to play more with shooting into the sun. Gorgeous (and exhausting) hike.

    That looks like some serious hiking– but the sights are gorgeous.

    That looks like so much fun! Good luck with your training. I especially liked the ‘bottom of the gorge’ shot with the rapids and sun flare. Gorgeous!

    Your interpretation of SIMC is spot on. Beautiful place to train.

    I think I might be able to hike with a big group like that and in a place like that. What a beautiful area – thank you!
