A misty morning greeted the Townsville Hike and Explore group at Paluma Dam this morning.

We disappeared beneath the canopy as we hiked over 19 kilometres from the dam, to Diorite Falls, Shay’s clearing, up to Mt Spec and back to the dam (where the mist had dissipated for blue skies)

Thanks to David Gusmeroli for leading today’s adventure. (Sorry folks, definitely overfilled the quote of tree and fungi shots today)
