    Nice view David. Looks like Tenterfield might get a bit of rain this week. Hope it's not too wet to get around next weekend!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameslagden] Quite a few storms around yesterday, not much rain though, but the forecast is for quite a bit. Haven't been on that track in the wet so not sure how it holds up.

    I noticed the boulders, I like the ones in particular with the trees growing on top of them!

    We have rocks,boulders that stick out like this in various parts of the UK, I was always taught in geography that this is the hardest rock, the softer rock that would have been the same height has been eroded away. In some places the rocks were deposited instead by glaciers. As no one was around I expect that it's a very good guess and probably correct. Enjoy while you can then.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Oh aye, these are granite and therefore an hard igneous rock. They do weather though, and even become brittle over time (I have some fairly weathered granite in my back yard that will fall apart if hit hard). However, before it gets to that stage it's very very hard indeed.
