What do you do when you accidentally engaged a troll on twitter? You go for a walk of course.
I didn’t realize there had been a flash flood in Canberra in 1971 that killed seven people, probably because I wasn’t born then. However, when I ask people who were around then, they don’t remember without prompting either, which I think is sad. I only learnt about the flood because of the geocache I found hidden at the (not very well advertised) memorial today.
This was walk inspired by one from Best Bush, Town and Village Walks in and around the ACT by Marion Stuart. I was disappointed that the guide book didn’t mention the flash flood however, and skips the memorial.
