What a place to put a communications tower right on top of a bald hill that maintains a presence over Cooma.
They say that down Cooma way, the land didn't have any trees, except up on the hillsides, so the region became settled because it was easy to use for grazing and things.
Several other hills circle the town and they have trees growing on them. And one is Billygoat Hill. The goat is in cast iron.
I guess the hills will change from winter browns to green at some stage.
Around Tumut, over to the west of the ranges, the country soon changed and soon appeared green again.

Today the first call of a bird was heard that arrives around this time and repeats and repeats a plaintive call.
