Fourteen Batemans Bay Bushwalkers and two visitors set out on the 11.5 kilometre Steel Gully and Pistol Shot circuit in the Mogo State Forest. There were several long ascents at the beginning of the walk but at the top we were rewarded by interesting granite formations and sweeping views. Descending into timbered gullies the group cleverly navigated a creek crossing with barely a wet foot amongst our members.
A variety of bird songs, even a lyrebird were heard as well as several sightings of majestic yellow-tailed black cockatoos. The walk was completed just as the winter sunshine disappeared and clouds covered the skies.
