Cams pretty much covers the access/track details here....viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7035
Thanks Cams, curiosity got the better of me, so I headed out that way yesterday....
the ridgeline walk is hairy & exhilarating at the same time, but do-able
, great campsite, great views,
a very worthwhile trip.........goes straight to the top of my favourites list !
A reminder of the unseen dangers, at the bush lookout....
View from the bush lookout.
Lightens a heavy heart everytime I see this photo...cool mountain breezes, scented eucalypt....big drop.
The wide expanse of Laidley Creek valley & a distant Castle Mountain
Getting closer, next the Dragons spine to negotiate....
Time for a savoury snack, rice crackers, wasabi peas & spicy beans.
Needed a change from the usual sweet sugary morsels.
Looking back past the dragons spine....and the mainly uphill climb back to the car tommorow.
Zigged too soon when I should have zagged a little later....& came across this small cave on the way to the summit.
Big enough for a couple of bivvy bags.
Home sweet home, Hennessy hammock in 'verandah mode'
View from my verandah...
Pesky, biting horse flies in abundance & ticks too.
Removed 9 from shoulders & back when I finally made it back home....my squeamish wife
did the honours
...I coudn't reach them myself.
Set up for the coming darkness.
Last rays of the day....
Laidley falls was still flowing.....so I did a quick side trip there on the return leg to replenish water supplies....
& have a very quick refreshing shower, while watching the morning mist swirl in the air currents.
4 litres just wasn't enough for this trip. I'll take more next time.
Thats it for now....Ooroo
