Packing away

Packing away — It rained quite a lot last night and the drips were still falling from the trees, so I kept the tarp up while I packed everything away.

Lollygagging

Day Two — ‘Deep Hollow’ to ‘Wahoo Point’ ‘Twin Falls Hollow’

Day Two – Camped above ‘Deep Hollow,’ in the sunshine this time — everything is pretty much as I left it when I was last here in August last year. I was late to sleep, so I slept in this morning. It’s almost noon already.

Looking up ‘Deep Hollow’

Looking up ‘Deep Hollow’ – Not a lot of water. The main spring comes out from under the grass middle right of the frame. There was nothing running now though. I was glad to find the small pool that I did.

Looking down ‘Deep Hollow’

Looking down ‘Deep Hollow’ – The springs and creek were dry. I found a small pool with a few gallons of clean-looking water in it. The bathing pool was completely dry, which surprised me.
