Windy Rock, Mystic River

Croc Kenneth Anderson wrote, around half a century ago, of camping in a “beautifully wooded spot” on the banks of the Cauvery, beneath “giant muthee, tamarind and jum-lum trees”. The lush littoral landscape Anderson was talking about still remains intact, and we’re just back after another exhilarating weekend spent exploring the wilderness around the Galibore Nature Camp, in the heart of the Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary.
