White Rock p2

Ok so about 40 mins of solid jungle bush walking I come to a metal pole affixed in a mound of concrete, it's engraved with 'do not remove this pole'. What the * is that all about I wonder.
From  this pole there is a steep decent (And I mean Steep) to the actual White rock.
 Slipping and sliding and about half way to the rock six Kookaburras decide to land the next tree over and laugh at this silly person scrambling down the mountainside.
It was great! Kookaburras are one of my fav birds and can be very elusive so to have six of them laughing in song, I was elated.

I kept going down hill and got to the White rock to find it a normal rock and someone keeps painting it white every year or so lol.
The view was commanding, I could even see the colours of bikini's on the back packers sun bathing at the lagoon in town.
I naturally sat and had some nourishment on the rock before trying to climb back up.
