LOST Adventures ~ FOUND Appreciations!

Well I did the Helena Pipehead Walk today and got totally lost! Missed my turn (signage ~ a lot to be desired!) and took a left instead of a right, onto the most hairy, narrow, yet so interesting track! I came across the Piesse Brook, Rocky Pool and Bibbulmun Track.  Not on the agenda but some fantastic scenery!

I also came across two very helpful volunteer track maintenance fellas who steered me right again...only to get lost again down the track! Haha  All good, as I found some great spots to have a tranquil rest.

Crossing the creek at the cement tank was my second mistake...take a right! I met some friendly hikers on the Bib and even a bobtail lizard. 

I finally came to Spring Rd where a lady was seem to be having a nice cuppa tea.  I asked her how I would get back to Helena Valley Rd.  She told me but I was a little exhausted by this stage and ready to head home! She offered me a lift back...thank her big heart!! The HAPPY End! :)
