Canberra is currently experiencing temperatures in the 35-40°C range, and we also hoped that it would be cooler in the mountains. It was, but not as much as one would wish for. Photos below the fold.
|Three Mile Dam Reservoir.|
|Yarrangobilli Thermal Pool, where we cooled off on Saturday afternoon. I assume the "thermal" part is more obvious in winter.|
|Black Perry Lookout, although this particular picture does not show the mountain it was named after.|
|Grasslands at Kiandra. This place was once a goldfield but is now only a road crossing with one building.|
|And, for the botanical angle, a Brachyscome (Asteraceae) in a rock crack at Kiandra.|
