Hiking Un-leeched

The Forest walk trail of the Illawarra Escarpment, is a corridor of dense vegetation that’s part-rainforest, part-eucalyptus forest with ocean vistas in between. The trail, which follows the coastline south towards the town of Coalcliff, had most certainly been drenched by the continuous rainfall in the weeks before which meant, more so, that by the time I set foot there, the forested parts of the trail were muddy and slippery, but still walkable nevertheless. 381 more words

The Woods

At the trail head feet go on boots,
and the mind is heavy with the world,
and up the trail trudge.
The boots carry burdens unseen, 208 more words
