Down Pours, Hail, Lightening, Floods...


The weather up here has been crazy. With more than 4 days of almost constant down pour, hail the size of golf balls, lightening to knock out my modem and desk top (but the laptop keeps cranking)... The MiniHaHa water fall is quite a sight. This is Sunshine crossing the creek at the beginning of the track down to the falls. I had to carry Mistisa over. The water fall was really something. We couldn't get anywhere near the base of it due to fast moving flood waters. The awesome power of it just left us sitting above, looking down on it in silence and awe. The really amazing thing is witnessing just how much water is caught in our tiny little catchment. Wentworth Falls would be incredible. Maybe we'll visit that one tomorrow.

Make sure you get a picture of it then. It would be spectacular to see in flood!
