09/09/15 - The Balconies - A Mystic Journey

Our last stop in the Northern Grampians was at The Balconies, a spot famous for its magnificent views. The day was cloudy and the views limited by mist and rain. We checked out the view from the parking lot. It was good enough, so we followed the trail.

The forest was shrouded with fog, but the rock formations and spring flowers kept us going. It wasn't a long trail, so we were soon at the main lookout. The view wasn't much better than the view from the parking lot, but it was still a magnificent sweep.

It was a northern wattle bird, we think

Possibly northern wattle fungus?
