 "​Matthew should be here by now" said George, and began to prowl up and down. Time passed and still no Matthew. Unable to stand the waiting, George went to centre of the clearing and began to utter the loudest day-oh'​s I have ever heard. His efforts were rewarded by a faint reply from the opposite ridge. After much day-ohing back and forth, a smiling Matthew appeared, carrying two packs, with Sue close behind, still limping a little. It seemed there had been some confusion in the directions given. However, after being filled with tea, Matthew forgave us enough to make music for us on his harmonica. When Jagungal was outlined against a golden backdrop of clouds, the temperature went down with the sun. Then the fire was built up - and up - and up, while stars played hide and seek among the clouds. "​Matthew should be here by now" said George, and began to prowl up and down.

 5.30 am. Birds singing down by the creek and the sky pale blue and clear as glass. By 8 am we were back among the Billy buttons, up to the old fire trail on Gray Mare Range. The Hut was occupied, with another party camped by the creek below. We waved and continued to Back Flat Creek. Hot sun, March flies, sparkling water, swathes of flowers - and time for morning tea. From Back Flat Creek to Straight Creek and then to Geehi River (again). We left our packs at an old campsite and, armed only with cameras, went to inspect the cataracts of Valentines Falls.

 We were a committee of 9 and met on 12 occasions, at each other'​s houses which were dispersed through the metropolitan area from Dee Why to Epping to Allawah. Each meeting averaged 2.2 hours and was attended by 7.91 people. In total some 209.5 people-hours was expended. We were a committee of 9 and met on 12 occasions, at each other'​s houses which were dispersed through the metropolitan area from Dee Why to Epping to Allawah.

 +===== The Spirit Of The Valley. ===== 
 by Brian Holden. by Brian Holden.
-South of my home there is a valley walled in by high sandstone cliffs. The floor is wide and a shallow river meanders through sandy banks. That valley is more than just something which can be seen and touched for, from her form, her substance.and the life which resides within her springs a spirit. It is a spirit intrinsic to her peace, beauty, natural balance and ancient past. Those who come and sense the valley to be peaceful and beautiful feel something of that spirit during their stay there. Those who also feel the balance and the history and who allow their imaginations to take them back to a time before humanity had ever entered the valley, will feel that spirit to be more real.+

 They will visualise countless sunrises and sunsets, over countless living things, season after season of countless hot, dry days filled with brilliant light and countless bleak ones. They will visualise countless breezes ruffling countless leaves and those leaves wet after countless showers. And then they will look and see in a way they have not seen before the trees which witnessed hundred of those seasons and they will pay homage to those trees which stood in that valley at a time when the quality, quantity and position of the valley'​s every minutist part was dictated entirely by the physical forces of nature. That was the time when the valley'​s spirit was at its fullest glory - when no earth, organism nor scene was changed by the will of a man. They will visualise countless sunrises and sunsets, over countless living things, season after season of countless hot, dry days filled with brilliant light and countless bleak ones.

 The first men who came did not significantly dim that glory. They were gentle nomads who passed by or lingered awhile, but they were always one and the same as the spirit of the valley for the spirit of the valley was as one and the same with their culture - and it was not in their culture to change the valley. Then on one momentous day in the valley'​s history men from an entirely different culture came upon it. The first men who came did not significantly dim that glory.

-At first the valley intimidated them.

-They traded most of the oldest trees. They ensured the permanent contamination of her waters. They brought in the manufactured products of their culture and they discarded them there, once their purpose had been served. They dimmed the valley'​s glory and as they did so, weakened her spirit. And then they left - but as they were going, others were coming and they continue to come.+At first the valley intimidated them.

 These newcomers are passing quickly through as their interest is purely recreational.
