Mt Direction - 4 October 2008

View up the Derwent to Mt Dromedary from Mt Direction - 4th October 2008Typical Tasmanian spring weather today. Hot sun, drizzle, cold breezes, solid rain, more hot sun. Snow forecast for Monday I think. Went for a jaunt up Mt Direction, for the nice views, reasonable exercise and likelihood of minimal rain. Went well. The rain held off mainly, just a bit of drizzle here and there, but cold breezes at the top. Then I was in full sun on the descent, wondering where my sunhat was.

Bennett's Wallaby, Macropus rufogriseus (rufogriseus), Mt Direction - 4th October 2008Interestingly, on the descent in the middle of the day, there were wallabies in various places along the track. A couple were sitting beside the track quietly, and were placid enough to wait while I composed a photo. These are the Bennett's Wallaby, known elsewhere as the Red-Necked Wallaby, Macropus rufogriseus.
