Olinda Forest hike in mid-winter 2011

George's Track

Ant House on Olinda Creek Rd

Orange fungus on Olinda Creek Rd

Barge's Track junction
These pix were taken on Friday afternoon July 15, 2011, in the Olinda Forest, 40 km east of centrall Melbourne.

They show the scenery and environment on a 3 km circuit hike in this former logging area, which took me along George's Track, Barge's Track, Bartlett Track, and the Olinda Creek Rd.

Strangely, very few fungi were seen - these are usually prolific in July!

Pumas live in this mysterious forests, but they were in their dens on this occasion!

Some images are fuzzy - the cheap Chinese-made camera has problems in low light conditions.

See all of the Photos of my visit!
