I realised yesterday I have less than two weeks, 341km, left to go on this trip barring any accidents or injuries. My body is holding up well apart from the weight loss and this next section into Dwellingup is the shortest of the trip although the days are all big. I also have another rest day planned in Dwellingup before the final run into Kalamunda.
Another early start today as I have to get back to the track before heading to on to Yourdamung campsite which will give me around a 34km day.
Today for me was one of the best of the trip. The weather was good, sunny and warm without being hot, the vegetation was the drier type that I prefer and in addition it wasn’t too dense which means you could see the woods for the trees. The wattles were also flowering. Everything just felt right. The Tingle forest in the south has still been my highlight but this is a very, very close second.
The terrain today was pretty easy with very few hills so I arrived shortly before 4pm. The days are getting noticeably longer now and it’s not getting dark so early.
I just love this type of forest. It’s human scale and not overpowering
