When you think you have explored all the interesting areas around where you live, start looking at the places in between and you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find.
Scott and I headed out on a hike to a new area neither of us had visited. We ended up taking a wrong turn up a gully but that didn’t matter as we found a very interesting natural feature that we didn’t know was there. We followed a stream up an increasingly steepening gully till it went near vertical. Up at the top of the valley the stream cut a keyhole through solid rock and flowed down a waterfall.
We climbed the waterfall clinging to slimy holds and out through the keyhole to the top of the cliff. We ended up getting a bit wet climbing through the waterfall. It was a cold winters day, 3 degrees centigrade, and our fingers got numb pretty quickly. The climb added an interesting edge to the walk and made the outing a whole lot more interesting. We found a lot more potential adventures in the area and promised we’d be back – when the weather warmed up.
It just goes to show that there is always something new out there, you just have to be willing to go out and find it.
