2003 Travels September 1

MONDAY 1 SEPTEMBER     ADELS GROVE

Day off. The days were definitely getting hotter now.

We drove to the National Park.

Walked the Constance Range Track, which we hadn’t done before.

This left from the canoe hire area, but went along the other side of the little backwater creek, to the track around the Island Stack. Along this narrow section, beside the back creek, I nearly trod on a baby crocodile, that was on the track. We both got a fright.

It was a pleasant gradual climb, on a track less walked than the other Park tracks.

We gained a different outlook over the Island Stack and the start of the Lower Gorge.

There were expansive views from the top of the ridge, in all directions.

We were very pleased we had managed to fit that walk in. It was not as spectacular as either the Island Stack walk or that to the Upper Gorge, but certainly well worth doing. Again, I was reminded of how much was missed by those who only visit this area for a couple of nights.
