Walkers – Colin - Distance: - 12.5k

2015-02-01 Turtle & Egg Rocks RecceToday I followed the route behind the Adventure Trails Farm.  There is a 4 wheel drive track which goes behind the barbed wire fence property boundary.  Therefore bushwalkers are free to climb to Turtle Rock without encroaching on private property.

I arrived at the summit of Turtle Rock at 10:00am which was perfect time for Smoko and rest.  Plenty of time to wander back down the same route and then make my way out to Nixon Creek and down to Egg Rock.

Report

I arrived at the base of Egg Rock at 12:15pm and had a leisurely lunch and a dip in Nixon Creek as it was hot.  A very refreshing stop.

So there is plentyy of time to do both Turtle Rock and Egg Rock and go up the gully to the climb point and be back in plenty of time for refreshments at the Cafe near the Numinbah Hall - Colin.

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.
