Mt Tennent – October 2010

It’s been a very wet spring and we thought that  the usually dry or only just trickling creek on Mt Tennent would be flowing for once, so we went to check it out. It was babbling and gushing away, and the surrounding bush was lush and blooming. A lovely spot for lunch – the sun even shone on us! And the view over the countryside below was also delightfully green. A pity Pete and Rohan weren’t there too, and that we didn’t have time to do the full walk to the summit, but it was enough to refresh the spirit!

    Awesome piccies Mum! Can’t believe how green it was!
    Thanks for dragging me up there – we’ll have to go back in a little while to compare and see what’s still green and lush as it gets hotter!
