The mountains which call me are not
the Rocky Mountains, as splendid as they are.
Rather, they are small volcanic cones that
surrounded me all my life until September 2005.
Now, instead, of seeing at least some of them
on a daily basis, I only see them when I make the
400-kilometre round trip back to the farm,
once or twice each year.
…is located at Mortlake and is known as
the Olivine Capital of the World.
Mortlake is around a 40 minute drive from
the farm and 145 kilometres from Geelong.
…is located appoximately half way
between Warnambool and Terang.
Consequently this is as close as I usually
get to this volcanic cone.
