Last week I made a quick trip down to Esk to see family. On the way home I traveled along the range instead of using the motorway along the coast. I went through Maleny, Montville, Mapleton, and got on to the freeway again at Nambour. There are magnificent views all along this route.
The land drops away very quickly and you can see all the way to the coast - or at least you can if the weather is good! Unfortunately, there was fog and low cloud around and the views were restricted because of this. We stopped first at the look-out a short way along the road to the Mary Cairn Cross Reserve.
The only birds I saw were these Crows - and I couldn't get close photos because I had the 50mm lens on the camera for the scenic photos.
