orienteering (Narrinyeri Hills) 1:20:00 [2] 6.0 km (13:20 / km)
shoes: Asics Nimbus 21

After dropping my parents to visit aunt & uncle at Petwood (a "you can't get there from here" locality right alongside the SE freeway but not remotely near any freeway exits) I had about 3 hours before collecting them again, to run another test course at Narrinyeri plus checking out a few extra potential control sites and ruling some of them out - I don't quite understand the green vs white; it seems the opposite of reality in some places. Also sussed out the bonus northern section which now belongs to national parks and could be useful for a couple of controls, but you need to get there by simultaneously crossing over the creek and under the train line...

Feels a bit weird to be planning for an event which quite possibly may not go ahead, but in the meantime, the mental health benefits of 'forest-bathing' are undeniable. And there's a surprising array of wildflowers out there; I narrowly avoided stepping on a single purple Pheladenia deformis (previously known as Caladenia deformis) otherwise known as blue fairy orchid or blue beard - these are much less common than Glossodia, or purple cockatoo orchid (now re-named to Caladenia major). Confused, much?
