As the river goes by

Two rivers meet in a valley between the ranges and the plains. These are some glimpses of that country.

Above Werribee Gorge on the circuit walk. Callitris glaucophylla, aka the white cypress/pine, is a slow-growing native tree that is mainly found in the dry inland — but the dry rainshadow area of Melbourne’s western plains and adjacent hills also has a few disjunct occurrences of the species. This stand was actually planted (in 1987) by the Friends of Werribee Gorge And Long Forest Mallee.

Following pics: the gully above the quarry carpark; dead, twisted box gum; a huge bone from something rather chunky… wombat? roo? …and a well aged fencepost, from the 1870s.
