it didn't matter because this drive was awesome. I'd heard lots of really good things about the sugar pine walk but when we arrived I was surprised by how quiet and eerie it was. we were the only ones there and the trees were scary in a sublime way.
the trees were so tall and structured that they seemed to dull most of the sounds around us, and the pine needles on the ground dampened sounds even more. we heard the occasional bird, a tiny bit of wind and our own muffled footsteps.
tony was very patient while I took photo after photo. he also took a few of me because my photo collection looks like the adventures of tony.
he cutest cafe in tumbarumba, found a few second hand books and drove home as the sun went down. it was a very lovely saturday.
