Short Day Walk

It was really good to get out today.

The trip had to be short to fit in with the social calendar at home, so good old Mt Glenrowan was the destination.

Now this is a fairly easy trip so no detailed walk notes this time.

From just past the gate off Taminick Gap I took the foot pad that travels through the bush and meets up with Casuarina track, after which I followed another old vehicle track before joining Ridge track for the balance of the trip.

Since spotting the She Oak in flower I had done a little more leg work on the internet, this link provides a photo of both the Male and Female flower. I did keep an eye out for the male flower and spotted this one, although not at it best it does show the general form of the flower.

Also spotted this Mexican hat tree.

Just couldn't walk past

I don't remember seeing the She Oak in flower before

I am no tree expert but I think this link covers the variety in the photo
