Track Notes

60-70mm of rain in the previous 24 hours and clearing showers forecast, so the Harrisons Peak walk was postponed. Stan kindly arranged an arvo substitute for those of us who wanted to breathe a bit of fresh air.

A dumb-bell shaped route, in via the Red Gum gate and paralleling the Gundaroo Rd up to the northern ACT border. A shower caused some coats to appear. Generally east along it. We spied border marker I3. Then south and south-west across the flat area of Mulligans Flat. The running water everywhere today proved that it’s not quite flat. I’ve never seen so much water here. It collects and flows south-west into Yerrabi Pond and so into Ginninderra Creek and down to the Murrumbidgee. You can see from the photos I obsessed. Out the Woodland Gate.

A pleasant couple of hours for thwarted walkers.
