The sky was overcast and the everything was dim in the dawn light. Wisps of fog floated over the valley, hiding the far hills. I saw magpies chasing each other in and out of the trees. The kangaroos were perfectly camouflaged against the brown grass and grey rock. I saw a mother with her joey flattened in the grass nearby, and another mother with a head poking out of her pouch. The big male bounded past me to stand next to a third female. A damp, cold, lovely walk.
