Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Three waterfalls

In the second week of the school holidays the youngsters were back with me, so I took another day of leave from work, added my brother to the mix, and headed up to Mt Field National Park (Imogen drove, so she could clock up some more learner driver time).

Our first landmark was/were the iconic Russell Falls. There’s a nice little nook in the corner of the incoming track that affords a lovely framed view of the falls (0.5 second braced hand-held).

This is the more traditional front-on view (the final drop is probably 10m, the whole falls is about 50m tall).

You used to be able to walk across the middle of the falls, if I remember correctly; the trunk of the tree that you can see on the right is probably 1m in diameter and thus quite big.

I think it was the first visit that these two had made to the falls*.

We ended up doing the full three-waterfall circuit, visiting Horseshoe Falls (only a few minutes’ walk above Russell Falls) …

and then continued on to Lady Barron Falls (making a 2 hour loop).

There were lots of new fern fronds in the process of uncurling. I love the spirals in this one.

We had a wonderful day together and Imogen and Colin also took some lovely photos.

*  Lisa (Imogen and Josh’s mum) and I visited Russell Falls in February 2018 and for some reason this didn’t get a blog entry (it was just before my breast cancer surgery, when my blog fell behind for a while). Here is a photo of Lisa and I taken that day.
