Walking with Kookaburras

You know that I'm going trekking in the Himalayas in 8 weeks time? Yikes!

So I'm doing some serious training - walking, up and down hills and walking some more!

Here are some pics from todays expedition - a beautiful little spot just 15 mins drive away in the National Park in the foothills of the Blue Mountains.

The track goes through a popular picnic and camping area at Euroka Clearing which was a farm in the old days.
As I sat on a bench to have my lunch who should arrive but Mr (or Mrs) Kooka!

Then there were 2!

...and then 3!

The middle one is a bit hard to see.

The walk ends up at the Nepean River which is looking a bit brown after all the rain we've had lately.

 Not so bad close up -

It's a great time of year for doing walks around here, as the summer is normally too hot.

A great 3 hour workout - done!
