The morning light had lit up the bush. The light filtered through the leaves of the trees creating vibrant shades of green - pretty. The bark of some trees was highlighted into more vibrant colours.
Yellow and brown coloured moths flitted on the rocks at the trig point.
The view at the end of the hike was over Broken Bay at the end of the Hawkesbury River's journey. The view spanned over Pittwater, Palm Beach, Ku-ring-gai National Park and Patonga. A hazy mist hung over the western view.
The striking feature of the hike was the silence. No bird calls. No insects buzzing. Just silence and an awakening sun.
