Seven Year 10 students and three Year 9 students completed the last silver walk for the year. It was in the Budawangs at the Wog Wog entrance, a big 3-day loop including the Cascades, Bureenbeet Brook camping caves and Corang Arch.
The weather was not kind which made day 2 particularly hard, and we did miss some of the more spectacular views however the spring flowers were out and almost made up for it.
