The middle of nowhere, on the outskirts of town

A strong group gathered yesterday in fine weather for FOBIF’s first walk of 2022. Mike Reeves had devised an ingenious route on the outskirts of Elphinstone: confined to a relatively small area, the walk wound through bushland gullies which could have been miles from anywhere, and provided enough ups and downs to generate a moderate amount of sweat. The walk ventured into areas set for a DELWP burn this season, and participants were interested in imagining what would be the outcome of the operation. Watch this space.

Our thanks to Mike for a brisk start to our walking year; and to Frances Cincotta for illuminating insights into the vegetation along the way.

Our April walk will be led by Jeremy Holland on Mount Alexander. Check this website for details.
