What A Day, Virtual Bibblemun Trail

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

After climbing out of our sleeping bag and tent and having a good breakfast of oatmeal, walnuts and dried apricots I grab my backpack for another days hike. We are surrounded by so much beauty. Here are a few pictures that I took on the trail today.

Can you see Joan walking in front of me on the trail? We are in the Mt. Dale area. It is 546 m. which to us Americans is 1,791 feet.

And this is a new critter friend known as a Bandicoot. Aren't they cute?
He wanted food but we didn't dare give him any. They are becoming extinct, so it was a great find getting to see him.

We are going to set up camp at Monadnocks campsite for the evening. I heard Ann say that tomorrows hike will be a little easier. I think I am starting to get my body broke in to all this exercise. I feel firmer and Gayle and CJ both commented on my pants fitting looser.

I think I will have an extra ration of food. Be it the fresh air, the trail but I feel famished. And I must not forget to fill my water from the tank. Good night everyone.

    OK, I am happy that we saw the Bandicoot with them being Endangered and all...... BUT, it looked like a MOUSE to me and I almost had a Stroke when he ran across the toe of my boot!!! EEEEW!!!!!
emoticon Thank you for showing me how to cook the Oatmeal. It was really good! Although next time I will let you have my share of the Apricots. I really like Blueberries and Cranberrys better.
emoticon Hope you slept well.

    Sounds like you are having more fun than you even imagined. Continue to enjoy your trip and let us know how wonderful each step of the way is - I have lots of animals that I have caught by surprise but never a Bandicoot - it is really cute.
