More Plant I.D's at Fox Hill Hollow

I found this today on my walk and was quite excited as I knew it was an Orchid but had no idea which one!  According to those that know about this sort of thing, the presence of Orchids in an ecosystem means it is healthy, that means a lot to me as our personal goal is to leave Fox Hill Hollow in better condition that when we found it and so it is good to know that our tramplings and explorations haven’t killed the place just yet :) 206 more words

Trousers Point Walk—a great way to spend Earth Day

Earth Day has come and gone in Australia, but I have wonderful memories of how we spent the day—mostly outdoors.

We started out the morning with a trip to Allport Beach to give the dogs—Archie and Mickie—a good run. 817 more words

I can not believe how close to the end I am! So excited but really sad as well. This trip has been not only an amazing adventure for me but a wonderful experience in meeting so many fantastic people out here whether they were hikers, track volunteers, day trippers and all the wonderful Track Angels. 17,747 more words
