Western Arthurs Jan 2003 - Day 7

Lake Vesta to Huon Campground

So we got down Moraine K quickly enough, and soon found ourselves negotiating a "shortcut" to cut off several kilometres of track. We had picked a route that minimised scrub bashing, but had no option but to plunge through some pretty think stuff. I think in the end we perhaps saved half an hour. We were rewarded, however, with some beautiful intimate shots of nature at her finest, made more luscious by the fact that the rest of the day was spent trying to get from shady spot to shady spot, as the Arthur Plains warmed up to high 30s.

Because my shots here were more about the scenery, I neglected to tell you that we had enoyed the pleasure of the company of Liam Correy for our trip. Liam was patient with us and knew how to wait. And I deny all rumours that we invited Liam along with us so that he could take our family snap!

Atop Mt Scorpio, with only the sky above us.
