Track Notes

Not many cars there when we set off, but packed when we returned. Great walk briefing, important whether it’s a short ramble or an overnight trip.

A lovely stroll. Many showers. Spectacular views – clear and a bit cloudy for the western sunset, but unfortunately clouded in and showery to the east, so no super moon rise.

Check out the photos, my little camera on dumbo automatic did a great job for dumbo.
