Unlike the last walk, I saw some interesting creatures on the way. Especially I liked wombats. Wombats are an adorable and curious animal, looking like a massive squirrel with a belly pouch. Although I had not expected to see wombats in the valley, I saw as many as two wombats: one of them was staying still near its burrow and the other one was running across the field! I couldn't have imagined that it ran! Actually, I had seen wombats in a zoo only a month before, but seeing wild wombats was much more exciting
In the last walk, I enjoyed a great view of Wolgan Valley. This time, instead, I saw a beautiful lake, The Blue Lake. I heard the lake was blue because the water included a limestone ingredient and it was more beautiful than I had expected. In addition, thankfully, there was no admission fee for the lake! I wished I could stay there longer, but unfortunately we didn't have much time, so I quickly took pictures and left. I heard later that wild platypuses lived in the lake, which encouraged me to go back to the lake one day. Actually, the lake was just beside a Jenolan Cave gate and even the entrance part of the cave was so big and attractive that I spent too much time in taking pictures there, too.
All in all, I enjoyed a walk very much this time again. This walk was wonderful, but quite different from the last one. The next one may also be different and I expect so. I am already looking forward to the next walk.
