Walkers: Michele (Leader),Gary, Pam D, John C, Melanie, Di, Kris, Paul, Stuart, Colin - 18.4k

2021-02-13 Caves and Ballunjui Falls

Ten walkers today stringing together two disparate walks because of track closures.  We could clearly see the evidence of recent fires whic have scarred the landscape and opened the forest to weed growth.
Very warm to start off with along the Caves Circuit which we hadn't walked for many years.  Saw the usual obsidian embedded in the rhyollite escarpment rock face.  The rhyollite flows have been smashed many times by subsequent volcanic activity and caves abound where rock falls have ocurred.
Slightly cooler on the way down to Nixon Creek along the Ship Stern circuit.  Plenty of water flowing in Nixon Creek so our expectations for the Ballunjui Falls were raised considerably.  As expected Ballunjui Falls was spectacular with more water flowing than we had seen in the many visits both Upper and Lower.  Continuing ver warm as we returned the same way so the refreshments at Gary's and Michele's place were happily received.  Another great day - 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.
