    ... the track proper and were probably a bit complacent as it was not long before we stumbled across a wasp nest and Mike suffered four stings. It was a quick scramble out of the area and a keen eye watching for further nests. As there was no track, we also had to make sure we followed the markers, which were plentiful, a mixture of orange doc markers and pink or orange ribbons.
