2010 has started mild and wet this year. Quite different from the cold & snow we had this time last year.
Our first outing therefore wasn't particularly exciting. Infact we decided to leave the car at home and just do a walk from the house.
We headed up Princess Avenue. The whole neighbourhood shrouded in cloud.
Heading onto the trail network on the edge of Mt Fromme from Braemar Road, around behind the tennis courts on Boundary Trail.
Entering the forest
Boundary Trail climbs the hillside with Hastings Creek in the ravine down to the left.
Climbing up into the dark wet forest
A quick look around the forest from Boundary Trail where we join Digger Trail continue up the side.
Most of the trails on Mr Fromme are designed for mountain bikers.
The wet weather made for some soggy obstacles.
Eventually the trail meets the Baden Powell hiking trail. Here it crosses the creek.
View from the bridge on the Baden Powell trail over Hastings Creek.
We then headed down the well defined Baden Powell trail
After descending another trail back to Braemar we took the power line trail down to Princess Park.
We then completed a loop in Princess Park and called that our first walk of 2010. Not very exciting but mostly under a good tree canopy which made the rain more bearable ! We hope to have some much more interesting walks over the course of the year.
