    • Thanks, Lana. Come along and join us… the flora and fauna, and expansive mountain landscape are unique all throughout the year! πŸ˜ƒ Presently a blanket of snow on the mountains… spectacular this winter!! Indigenous culture and the rich history… make it all so very interesting around this region of the Snowy Mountains. The well known bush poem, “The Man from Snowy River” plus others were written and a movie with the same title was made. I am enjoying a lovely break… and hope you have a good weekend and the coming week too. Hugs xx
