I think the tea tree colours the water and the falls make it frothy.

Cockatoos. These have been difficult to photograph as they always fly off when I get close.

Lots of wonderful big trees.

I had the option of a 12km round trip to the top of Mount Frankland. I declined to take it as it had rained a few times today so I assumed there wouldn't be much of a view.

Lots of sticks bounce up and hit my legs. A big one tore a hole in my sock.

There was a long downhill section before the hut. I always like to finish on a downhill. 

The river near the hut was covered in white foam too.

There is no one else here.

Kwokralup is the traditional name for the area, Beela river.
