2015-04-25 Morans Falls_116Only two of us on the walk today.  A glorious morning and a walk in the rainforest was wonderful way to commemmorate Anzac Day.

Being only two of us we had plenty of time to wander casually to Moonlight Crag to gaze at the view over the valley.  We had our short smoko here.

 

Report

From here we walked on to Morans Falls which had a a lot of water coming over today.  We saw many people who were out for a short walk and enjoying the beautiful day.  After admiring the falls we continued on to the Binna Burra road and then down to Python Rock Lookout.  Again plenty of bushwalkers but as luck would have it they all departed which allowed us to have lunch at the new lookout structure overlooking a beautiful valley vista.

A casual walk back to find the car park full and others waiting for us to vacate our space.  On our way off the mountain we must have met at least another 50 cars coming up.  We surmised they were people having been to Anzac Day celebrations were now out to enjoy the rest of the day walking in the rainforest as we did - 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.
