Camping by the Moroka River

Spent a couple of nights camped by the Moroka River, one at Horseyard Flat. Beautiful weather. Great mid-week company. No-one but Della and the two Jack Russells, who were born in Australia, pay their taxes on dog food, vet supplies & etc, so are entitled to share our beautiful National Parks with us! A.B.Guthrie on the ereader! Walked in to the lovely Moroka Falls in the Snowy Bluff Wilderness. Della’s ankle is improving all the time, but is not yet up to multi-day 5-8 hour walks over rough country. Soon, perhaps. Will need to be cooler weather (than today), high up (temperature decreases by @ 1C per 100 metres elevation) or further South. Baw Baw Plateau or the Sealers Cove Circuit (on Wilsons Prom) are short-term possibilities. The South Coast Walk in Fiordland is still on the agenda (maybe early autumn next year, rather than late summer this year because of the ankle). Soon we will be off canoeing (Macalister, Wonnangatta, etc). Today (32C) would be a great day, but Della has declared it a ‘rest’ day – presumably more suitable for working in the heat!
