Thursday 13 January 2011: Dead Pig
Today we are leaving Naseby and traveling to Moa Creek. None of us have ever been on this track before which crosses over the Rock and Pillar Range, and Rough Ridge. What an experience the whole day was, packed with amazing sights. Once we left civilisation, we were high up on the ranges and I think what I noticed the most were the wonderful large rock formations, lots of tussock, and Spaniards - they were every where. Big spikey plants with large stems and yellow flowers. Also 'horse mushrooms' everywhere. (We had had field mushrooms for dinner and breakfast at Dups, so there was no way that these ones were going to have that delicious taste.) It was very windy up on the tops and lots of dust, outstanding views.
There were so many photographs taken and it was hard to decide what to put up.
There were a few gates to open on the way, and at one of the gates there was the remains of a pig hung over the fence. You can also see the large stone incorporated in the fence. We saw many used in this way, they would be dug into the ground as a post was, and would be very strong.
