About a week ago we had a beautiful winter's day. The temperature was mild and the sun was out. It was time to take our dogs Odie and Molly on a walk to new ground.
If you walk up the avenue I live on and turn onto the fire tracks you can walk right to the top of Mt. Wellington. We live at the base of it. I generally take the same path but this day we made a left turn onto another track. I don't usually take that route because it is a steady walk uphill. I also don't walk it in the warmer weather because of the highly poisonous tiger snakes. They are currently in hibernation so a good time to go bush.
It isn't until the very end we get to start walking downhill to our home. I thought I would share the photos. I enjoyed the day with my best friends and they could not get enough smells of possums, wallabies and pademelons into their highly sensitive noses. What a good day it was.
|It was nice today as there weren't any screaming downhill mountain bikes to watch out for.|
|Molly doesn't get tied up in scents but Odie's dad was a Beagle.|
He just can't help himself.
|I could barely see Molly on the trail but Odie is off and running after another scent.|
|Odie decided to be a bit social and stick to the trail for awhile.|
|This area was peppered with wallaby droppings. So much to smell.|

|When we were away on holiday in May/June there was a lot of rain. This must|
have been put up during that time. Now it is just a trickle down this trail.
