Bushwalking in the Great Southern

With our friend Gerard visiting, we decided to drive out to the Stirling Ranges and check out the Mt Trio hike. It is definitely not for the faint hearted, withe the trail heading straight up to begin with. The view was spectacular, but we didn't have the time (or the energy!) to complete the whole hike. This is the view back down the trail from our turn-around point:

Back at the bottom we spent some time allowing the kids to clamber over some boulders while we followed at a rather slower pace:

From the top of these boulders Jeff spied the endemic, elusive, Cranbrook Bell:

Later that day we headed further south to Albany and wandered over the granite slabs around the top of Mt Clarence to admire views of Albany township, Lake Seppings and Middleton Beach, Emu Point and Oyster Harbour.
