Cloudy Sunday morning in July-- not a perfect day for photography. But it was Junior Ghumakkad's last weekend in Secunderabad. So, five hikers set off at 6 AM. A word about each of them:
Nikhil: 4th grader from California USA. Loves soccer and hiking.
Dia: 9th grader from Army School, Secunderabad. A tennis enthusiast who writes well
Siddhi: Just finished school. Aspires to be a veterinarian. Loves Nature and photography.
Sridhar: Former Captain, Indian Army. Fitness guru who loves gardening.
Harsh: The Ghumakkad- not in the picture below.
No more writing. Let the pictures with captions by Nikhil do the talking.
Hurray, we have done it!
This is the water tank on top of the Gunrock.
The water tank built in 1882, continues to be in use.
We met another family who had toddlers climbing the rocks very deftly.
While climbing the rocks, we shot a 30 second video of a millipede who seemed to be hiking with us.
Another small creature spotted by us is the beetle with yellow spots.
Wild flowers break the monotony of barren rocks.
Rocks and boulders around Gunrock have interesting shapes.
The area around Gunrock appeared much cleaner this time. My last hike was 4 months ago. This was thanks to Indian Army. See the picture below.
Before we close, the question remains 'where is the gun on Gunrock'? You are welcome to clarify the mystery of the missing gun.
