Day 3 - Mists of the ancient sandhills

Day 3 - Mists of the ancient sandhills
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

EASTERN Australia is known for its humid summers, but it is the middle of winter that experiences the highest relative humidity. Almost without fail, the air temperature at night gradually drops to its low at sunrise. The temperature most mornings is only slightly above the wet bulb temperature of between 5 and 12 degrees Celsius. This raises the dawn humidity to betwene 90-97%. With the air so close to saturation, the dew is very heavy and a light morning mist is very common hovering over the ground in the valleys, often turning into low cloud covering the hills in a thick fog. Fortunately the air temperature quickly rises to the low 20s as the sun rises in the morning sky, quickly dissolving the cloud creating a clear, calm day.

Today's journey takes me winding around the highest ridges of the Cooloola Sandmass progressing in a generally southward direction. Ironically I only get one very brief glimpse of the sea through the endless trees during the entire day, sinking home the sheer scale of this coastal sandmass.
