After a bit of a stormy night (heavy rain, gale force winds, thunder and lightning – did I miss anything there!), we awoke to a bit of blue sky and sunshine and that is all the encouragement we needed to take a meander up the 10 mile Valley.

The 10 mile valley turns into a photographer’s paradise after some rain and would have to be our go to walk.

The hillside comes alive with the trees and leaves glistening, the gurgle of the creek and the waterfalls cascading down the moss-covered rock face.

The creek was surprisingly clear but in good flow bouncing off the rock bed.

So beautiful up here after rain – so peaceful – just the sound of the birdsong and the gushing water.  It may not be a 10 mile walk but it is a beautiful walk up the 10 mile valley.
