A magnicent long haul today.  The views from all of the lookouts were spectacular.  Leeches were a problem as usual for all of us and Christine this time suffered the worst.  Thanks to Gary and Michele who provided an overnight stay for an early start, and of course the now traditional delicious chocolate cake washed down with coffee and tea.  A spectacular weekend of walking which incorporated a short walk to Denham Scenic Reserve.

This walk was memorable for the wonderful scenic drive through the Northern Rivers region of Northern NSW capped off with bushwalking scenery we are not familiar with in SE Qld.

Minyon Falls had much more water flowing than last time I was here.  A popular spot as many, many day visitors were in attendance.

Walkers: Paul (leader), Cassie, Christine D, Julie C, Werner, Colin.  Distance: 17.9k

2018-10-27 Springbrook Pinnacle

The waterfalls were spectacular and three climbed the Springbrook Pinnacle.
Christine D wrote "Great day bushwalking with Werner AeschlimannColin BridgeCassie Van MaarseveenPaul Biggs and Judy Cullen. I'd forgotten how tiring Warrie circuit can be. Even made it halfway up The Pinnacles but then made the silly mistake of looking down. Apparently a lot of rain fell while I was in the wilds of Borneo and as a result all the waterfalls were flowing beautifully. Thank you Paul for leading us and being such a gentleman assisting me at the many creek crossings."

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
