Starting the climb up Mt Donaldson

The first section of the walk is almost flat with the slightest of uphill inclination –  for me this is the best!  The track is edged by myrtles and laurels and other native plants. I loved this deliciously pleasant experience of walking on the smooth track and through these forests; it was one which put a Mona Lisa smile on my face.    20170305_101917.jpg

Perfectly formed fungi attracted our attention along the way.

Gradually the path narrowed and began to wind around the contours of the lower slopes of the mountain.  Its surface became less regular and some stony irregularities meant a certain amount of vigilance was required as each step was made.

Occasionally we emerged a little from the forest and could see more of the landscape.

Gradually the height of the vegetation reduced as the elevation increased and we could see further afield towards never ending overlapping and extending hills.
