While the Scouts were out hiking through Mount Remarkable National Park, this left me at a loose end and an opportunity to head up to Alligator Gorge and Kingfisher Flat to grab a couple of Geocaches.
The only issue was that the legs were feeling a little sore after yesterdays trek up Mount Cavern.
Today was again overcast with the occasional rain shower which made for some good hiking weather.
First stop was up through Alligator Gorge to the Terraces and then the Narrows taking in two Geocaches on the way – Gators and Crocs! The Gorge was spectactular with a 4km walk up and back with the only issue having to walk up those stairs – sure felt those muscles
Next was an 8 km walk to Kingfisher Flat and back. With the rain over the last 2 days, the track was very muddy and I grew about 4cm higher on the walk. At Kingfisher Flat, there was a mother Emu with 6 chicks but they wouldnt stay still for a photo.
I got back to camp around dark – it had been a good couple of days, caching and hiking but tomorrow was going to be a rest day to recover ….
