a walk in the rain | Mt Ellen

Last week we headed into the Wirrabara Forest to walk the trail up Mt Ellen (there are a few steep bits, but it's not a big climb like Mt Remarkable). The plan was to have morning tea & take some family portraits at the top.

As we drove into the forest though, the rain started falling - we decided to go on anyway & it was a wet but fun walk. It rained pretty steadily for most of the time, with a few breaks & a couple of heavier showers in between. You can't really tell in these photos, but it was pretty wet & mushy under foot.

Normally you can see a long way from the top, but everything was shrouded in misty rain, that & the wind meant we decided against tea & portraits at the top. Instead, after we made our way back to the car we drove to the picnic ground & sat under the shelter there to have our lunch/morning tea.

photo 4 (of the lookout sign) was taken by Kathryn, all the others are mine.

  3. Looks like an awesome adventure. I love how the rain and mist make nature look so mysterious and even more gorgeous.
