Postcards from the Limestone Coast: Mt Schank

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~John Muir

Mt Schank
Australia's Youngest Volcano, aged 4600 yrs

Despite the fact that noone really knows when and if this volcano will erupt again, we took the exhilarating walk to the rim of the crater.

This interesting little fellow was spotted along the way and admired by our two little nature lovers. His face is rather ferocious looking, but beautifully red! (Oh how I love red at the moment. Bright, happy, rich, cute on little Eee ....that's another story!)

Once at the top, it was just too much for my Generous Gentleman and 5 yr old Ess to resist walking down into the crater following this path. (Can you spot the path, zigzagging down on the right, through the grass?)
Little Eee and I remained on the rim, enjoying the amazing views of the surrounding area... so lush, so green.

We spotted dewdrops on leaves...

...wildflowers blossoming beneath our toddling, wandering feet...


...and finally Daddy and big sister returning to the rim, ready to make a descent once more.

These pics defintely wake me up !!

You r such a good photographer.

I cant imagine that these lovely scenery are taken in Australia, Adeleide. It seems like somewhere far away in a no man island.

Hi Mili, thanks for popping in. I hope you will one day have some lovely pictures to share as well. I look forward to it.

Thankyou Catherine! I am delighted!

Nina, no Ella is not ours. She is beautiful also thought and yes the product of so much creativity.

Thankyou Jackie. I am proud of these pics, yet they are taken far from Adelaide but still in South Australia.
