bush path

Two paths we have recently strolled. The first is at Black Rock where a steep path leads down to the bay and branches left and right. Straight ahead is usually very wet but what a challenge for boys on bikes especially when taunted by an official sign. On a similar path  further along the coast Jill and I were chased by a Tiger snake hurling itself off the wall straight at us as we walked up.

The second is at Gariwerd / Grampians National Park. This bush track is leading out to the lake View Lookout. This young Kangaroo was enjoying a snack.

These two haiku are my offerings for RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 92 Life&Path where all types of haiku responses can be read click here https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/04/11/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-92-lifepath/  and also to the engaging co – hosted 52 week photo challenge week 15 PATH, viewed at Wild daffodil https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/photo-challenge/

A certain indicator of the drought was the small number of kangaroos around Halls Gap township at the northern end of Gariwerd national park. We were up here at the same time last year and there were mobs of kangaroos everywhere. On the property where we stayed there were over 100 roos. Walking Charlie was challenging then as her hunting instincts were aroused everywhere we went. This year I saw 6 roos at the same property. At Halls Gap the kangaroos have come into the town to eat watered grass and for drinking.  This large male was beside a bush track  and ignored me. People have to always be wary of large males especially in the mating season.
