It’s been exceptionally dry on the mountain this week. So we took a pot up the hill and fill it with water each night. Last night when we were filling it, we found a koala watching us. It’s a pretty rare sight to see – these guys don’t usually show themselves to humans.

We have filled a pot with water on the mountain, because it's so dry. We were filling the pot with a camelbak and saw this guy watching us. (It's definitely a guy.)
