We met at the usual parking bay just over the top of Greenmount hill. Then, a nice trip out towards York. After turning off we travelled through the bush a bit. Given the recent rains there wasn't a huge amount of water on the ground but there were some substantial individual puddles to drive through. So we did. Our first stop was at the lookout. The kids collected some reptiles while the rest had a short morning tea and a look over the scenery. Our next stop just down the road was the swamp. The intention was for those not interested in the mud to have lunch and for the rest of us to play. As it turned out, everyone played and then had lunch followed by more playing. I really can't complain about that. Last time we only made it a little way around the swamp.
After lunch we also had to recover Brendon when his V8 swallowed a little bit too much water. We tried doing a tow-start but ended up dragging him back through all the mud to the picnic area.
As you can see from the final photo, driving across the swamp meant picking up lots of reeds. After leaving the swamp we drove through some more puddles (cleaning off some mud along the way) we found the gully playground area. We spent some time in here too. On the way out towards the power line track we found a nice puddle and used it for a photo opportunity. After a navigational error on my part we (eventually) found ourselves back at the powerline track. Several of our party headed back to Perth at this point while a few of us went up the powerline track in search of more water. Following this we made our way back to Great Eastern Highway, aired up and back into Perth." />
