« Photos | Watagan State Forest Abbotts Falls and Leeches
27th October, 2007
The forest was rather beautiful after the recent rains, however, the rain also brought a plague of leeches. We only became aware of this when we were deep in the valley, and there was no way out but straight through... which caused a frantic run through the bush. It was quite hilarious, but a little unnerving. When we got out of the valley I stripped off my clothes to get all the leeches off me, and they left me quite bloody (see the last photo). I'll give this walk a miss next time.
