Come Walk With Me ......

 .............. this Treasure Tuesday hosted by the lovely Melody

Can you see the mountains in the background?
~ there is a pronounced mountain..... further behind that - it's almost centre picture .... way back on the horizon

That's the Bunya Mountains
viewed from home


there will be beautiful views


wonderful rock formations

we may even be surprised by a handsome local


spot the last of the seeding native shrubs before winter


look at the tree tops in the forest


admire carpets of fern

knotted limbs

we'll stop for a picnic



and watch the red wallaby's snacking


afterwards we'll follow a stream


to pretty little tinkling waterfalls


observe the bark of the Bunya pine

admire the tallest of tall Bunya trees


admire miniature gardens in trees

"looks like when you tangle your knitting" says Him


I treasure the outings we have
even if seeing it all means going back up


It seems tree writing is not a modern idea
(August 1926)


A couple more views on the way home
remember the first picture looking this way
this one is looking back
in between the trees is home


and on the way home a lovely surprise


Echidna
my favouritist of all
moves jolly quick for a little fella


Hope you enjoyed your walk

I really treasure our day's out - pictures taken this last Sunday

My legs are so stiff and sore today so I'll just sit with my coffee and pop over HERE for a read

G'day

Nice walk, thank you! I love Bunya pines but know not to stand under them....those nuts can be a bit deadly if they fall and hit you.

Hey Fiona! I LOVE the Bunya's!! We visited often as kids and then when I was at uni in Toowoomba, a trip to the Bunyas cleared the head before exams. We had our wedding night up there and try to get up for a visit once a year ... or so ... been a while this time! :0) Thanks for sharing your lovely pics! Hope this weekend is as fun - Bear Hugs!
