Monday evening, 21 November: Kama Nature Reserve – S/E. Meet at 6:30 pm. Kama Nature Reserve is located off William Hovell Drive opposite the suburb of Hawker; about 2.5 km from Coppins Crossing turnoff if travelling towards Belconnen and about 2.5 km from Belconnen Way if travelling towards Glenloch Interchange. You can park on either side of the road. My white Land Cruiser will be parked at the entrance to the car park on the Eastern side. We will walk through an underpass then to the Molonglo River.

Not wanting to interrupt the evening walk by geocaching, I arrived early and did a bit. Logged GC64VX3 Ka(r)ma Chameleon – Purple, GC6MCVK Gateway to Kama, GC5AREW Kama Going Postal, GC64VXB Ka(r)ma Chameleon – blue, GC64VXJ Ka(r)ma Chameleon – Green and GC65KJK Ka(r)ma Chameleon – black. The grass off the mown tracks was very high and I was not suitably attired. So I stomped through it in an attempt to see off the slithering reptiles. Only saw one snake. Returned to the car.
By 6.30pm all bar one had arrived and we did the planned walk. My geo-mother (got me going on this crazy game), KittyKatch was on the walk and, with her assistance, three of us logged GC64C76 Kama Treasure Hunt. Just couldn’t resist; little disruption to the walk.
Pleasant walking through the grasslands on tracks to the Murrumbidgee River, Lovely evening light. Returned to the cars.
Do try these little ditties. Visitors are most welcome. See the CBC Activity Program (refreshed monthly), choose a walk that suits you and turn up. Easy!
Thank you to gentleman leader Phillip and all.
