Time for a New Challenge: #60 for August - Anything BUT a card

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things.......

Unlike Alice, I am not falling headfirst into a rabbit hole and having hallucinogenic experiences, but boy the world is certainly taking on a strange hue - between the USA elections, the Northern Territory's treatment of juveniles and Brexit.......and as for that non-muslim gang who calls itself Isis - cowards the lot of them.......we certainly have lots of reasons to bury our heads into said rabbit hole and create a whole new life for ourselves. It is a good thing we have our craft to keep us sane in this mad world!

And pretty pictures......

This shot was taken today (July 24th 2016) along the Enchanted Walk located at Cradle Mountain Lodge - a stunning walk through ancient forest. The walk is a circuit with this picturesque bridge along the way. Winter Wonderland.

The Cradle Mountain area is spectacular at any time but with all the snow we have had this winter, it has taken on a fairyland look at times........this place is about a four hour drive from my home. I have been there several times but not lately, I must admit. 

Oh, and we have a new challenge as well to take our minds off the world at large.....
