Track Notes

Soooo nice to feel the wind between my toes after a bit of a forced break due to sickness.

A beaut area of the Canberra Nature Park – Farrer Ridge Nature Reserve and Wanniassa Hills Nature Reserve. Very ably and pleasantly led by Phillip, who knows this area well.

We won’t mention the gracious allowed for detour to look for a 1.5 difficulty geocache which I couldn’t find.

I guess this could be classed as my first Cbr100Challenge training!

Thanks Phillip and great to catch up with Therese and Gavin.


4 walkers – Gavin F, Therese P, Phillip S (leader), me.
