I went up Mt. Erica today (8.8.17)as a long day trip from the evil empire ( Melb. ). There was plenty of soft fresh snow and the trees had quite bit of ice and snow accumulated in them. The snow line was down to below Mushroom Rocks. It was quite a day out on microspikes and snow shoes.
I powered up there even though I had left the topographical map in the car by mistake! :-0.

Even though I had hired diamond pattern wheel chains in Erica , there was no need for chains on the Mt. Erica road but there was some slush and melted ice and spot of sago here and there.
It was mizzling at the car park when I first rocked up but the sun came out here and there on the ascent and it did NOT snow up higher at all today.

I did not see anyone else up on way up or on the summit plateaux area.Visibility was not great but I am certain I was the only one in the area. I was making fresh tracks in fresh snow. It was very cold at the top but it was also beautiful , serene and marvelous.:)
I took some film photos.
