Kosciuszko National Park

May 19, 2011

In my last post you could see Mt. Kosciuszko, the highest mountain in Australia.

The mountain is situated in Kosciuszko National Park, one of Australia’s many national parks.

Even here species of gum trees – or Eucalyptus – , the most abundant tree species in Australia (more about them in upcoming posts), are common. I was told that gum trees are the only trees in the world with species that are able to grow at all temperature- and climatic zones…

      A great and lovely country – and you have been there too?!! – where did you go in Australia?

    Eucalypts are probably The icon tree in Australia. I loved their sinuous shapes, light green or silver grey leaves with a touch of pink when they get dry, their scent too and the soft smooth feel of some of their trunks. Love your picture too.

    The road perfectly framed really adds to the feeling of vastness and gives perspective to the wonderful landscape.

      Yes, I loved the view of that path, we walked down to the stream (see the photo from there in my other post from here) and that was longer than I expected!
