Some amazing flows going over the rock ledges, cliffs and boulders...too rough for me to swim although there were some hardly individuals who were in the creek (in slower moving areas!)
Some beautiful fungi and lichens emerging out of the wet weather...
Metallic turquoise lichen
Mycena sp becoming someones lunch
The forest enveloped in cloud...
Driving back out of the valley the temptation to swim became too great, so with more than a little trepidation I flopped into the swimming hole where some agile teenagers were having so much fun...
Despite looking more like something Greenpeace should roll back into the surf I did have a great time and for the first time in a long time relaxed and enjoyed the thrill of the moment.
