Today we walked 19km from Lockerbie through to the top of the Craigieburn Grasslands.
Anna Topalidou joined us today, and once again Lesley and I felt we had the right person for the job. We had a lot of squeezing through tight spots, gorse and rocky creek crossings. Anna was up for it.
We are now in the large 'family' tent being tortured by bad radio and our three daughters.
It is dark and I need to contemplate today before I can write about it properly... We had some interesting encounters, including four men out hunting for feral animals. Lockerbie was quite beautiful in a pine forestry sort of way, and lots of indigenous plants were persisting. South of there the gorse was impenetrable and the creek seemed less healthy.
We made a massive detour at the end of the day to avoid walking on Austral bricks land and another private land owner who asked us not to walk their stretch of creek.
