To continue yesterday's hike, I thought the main trail would be right up on top of the cliff, but it wasn't; it followed the boulder slope at the base of those cliffs. It was pretty spectacular in places!
The trail passed through a healthy patch of Bulblet Fern, bright green in the morning light.
And past Cedar trees growing directly out of tiny crevices in the limestone.
And then we came out to the open cliffs with dark lichen staining the otherwise light rock.
Another tiny fern, the Smooth Cliffbrake, that grows in tiny crevices and ledges on the cliff face.
Then we stepped through a gap in the cliff, into a remarkable overhang creating a room known locally as the Devil's Playhouse - amazing rock formations.
And through this to a square room with vertical cliffs towering 60-80 feet straight above us. You can pick out the pitons used by rock climbers on both the right and left.
This enormous block of limestone had separated from the main cliff, leaving a very narrow crevice. Often these are much wider, letting you walk through between the walls of rock.
Polypody Fern on top of a mossy boulder down the talus slope - seemingly its favourite habitat.
And finally we ducked down beneath this overhanging rock, through the smaller crevice, and home. A fascinating exploration.
