A jaunt around Lake Kittamaqundi; path progress











 




 
 
Most of these photos were taken yesterday morning. A few are from last weekend. Following are before and after snapshots of one section of the path where it runs between the lake and Little Patuxent River.
 
Last weekend...
 

This weekend...

 
 
How this part of the path generally looked previously (photo taken a few weeks ago)...

In the Karri Forest




Around Pemberton, south of Perth, Western Australia, October 1996. Karri is one of several species of Eucalyptus growing only in the southwestern corner of Australia.



A couple of scenes of Bunbury, on the Indian Ocean, where I stopped for the night on the way down from Perth. The trees are North Island pines. (I booked a room in a nice, resort-like hotel overlooking the town.)

Wonnerup House, Western Australia, October 1996










Beautiful scenery here, but note that the white calla lilies blooming all over the meadows are not native to the area.
