Montacute Heights to Cudlee Creek
Southern Guidebook, Maps 3.5-3.7
One of the nice country-gardens in the valley near Cudlee Creek
The change to daylight saving is always a good thing - bring on summer! However, when it coincides with a Sunday hike, maybe not such good timing? Getting up very early after being out last night... mmm... that extra hour of sleep would have been nice...
Yesterday it was 30+ degrees, but with a late change today was cool, overcast and very very windy. Ideal for walking along ridges? Mmm, no. But then we soon descended into a valley, and the rest of the day was fairly sheltered, although the wind occasionally blew strong to remind us of it's presence.
It was the last walk of the hiking season, the Fire Danger Season having been brought forward this year.
