If you look carefully into the distance, you’ll see a kangaroo hopping across the road.
I was surprised to see the kangaroo: it was just after 8am, and it wasn’t the kind of overcast cloudy day that often sees them hanging around the road after sunrise. This kangaroo was lucky: it almost leapt in front of a ute (the dust is from the ute passing). The kangaroo changed direction and waited a few seconds before trying again.
It was a beautiful morning for walking. The temperature was just over 2 degrees when I set out. There was a dusting of snow further up the ranges yesterday, but we are back to summer today.
