Mount Taylor Nature Reserve, Canberra
As usual, once I get around to doing something I am always so very happy because of the satisfaction of experiencing the beauty.
Parking on Sulwood Drive we opted to follow Mrs Low's Fire Trail which is a steady climb... le puff, le pant. The views are stunning from even the lower part of the walk, taking in east, south and west views with the Tuggeranong Valley being the prominent vista. Once at the top though you also get to see 'over the back' to the north which takes in Woden Valley and distant views to Black Mountain. The expansive views are magnificent, it would be beautiful at night time looking down at all the twinkling lights... but my favourite is the view across to the mountain ranges. I believe the one in the foreground is Bullen Range Nature Reserve and Urambi Hills Nature Reserve, the Murrumbidgee Corrider and then the Brindabellas in the background.
No kangaroos spotted but we did see more divine little birds darting and dashing about in the bushes and some lovely Magpies, one of which was happy to pose for a photo. More images can be seen here...
