Another Night in Rocky Crk

Ed Ethan Dick Russ Aimee and Tash

01/01/2022

So for some years (with a break in 2020 due to bush fires) I’ve been joining Ed and Ethan for a New Years Day recovery canyon.

It started as a family thing but kinda morphed and pretty much has had different people joining each yea . This year we decided to do a trip to Rocky Creek New Years Day Night and the above mentioned legend joined us

Anyhoo I first visited Rocky cr nearly 30 years ago. It blew my mind and have made a visit to it at least once a year ever since. I have waxed lyric about it both in day and at night heaps before so I wont bang on to much this time around

I was surprised to learn Aims hadn’t done Twister or Rocky before. It was Also Tash’s first time
I think people dismiss it as it’s a bit of a drive and no abseils but bang for buck fun and beauty I reckon you can’t beat it

The water temps were as warm, or I should say least cold, as I can ever remember so we spent a lot of time laying about with lights off soaking in the ambiance ©Dick

and of course the Glowworms.

I honestly think the displays in Rocky are just consistently awesome
Getting a shot of glowworms in a canyon with a night sky above has been a bit of a goal of mine. 1 day I’ll manage glow worms and star trails
But for now light sabres will do
Iddy biddy Giant Water Spider Megadolomedes australianus. This things can have a leg span up to 18cm. I always thought they were fairly harmless but Caro tell us she once got a bite and it took ages to heal

We went in earlier than usual for doing a night trip but had enjoyed the serenity so much it was the 2nd before we were were out of the canyon

People are just like worms. The best ones glow.

  1. Not exactly.
    Only certain people glow like worms: those who go to dark places and put lamps on their heads.
    Glowing people are not necessarily good (while all worms are), but some of them are on average bit more conscious than the rest of non-glowing population.
