no one has it yet, geographically GS is closest.
Interested in folks comments about scan quality and colour .. had to do a bit of "de-ektachroming". This was using a Canon flat bed scanner with a slide adaptor. The image on Darb has also been obviously optimized. I've deliberately started with a couple of tricky contrasted slides till I get the swing of it.

Hmmm, not sure if things are reversed on a ski site.....cold is good. But I'll have a punt on Black Spur maybe.

What about the touristy falls near Marysville. The ones that are all lit up at night. I can't remember the name. If so I have a photo of the very sam fern.

surveyorcam is warmest or coldest if we play by GS's suggestion.

I have a strong feeling I've been there, but I can't quite place it.
So I'll guess something rarely visited in winter like Mt Clear or the hills nearby.

Interesting snowshoes, what brand and model are they?

EDIT. On second thoughts, can I change my guess to the ridge between Mt Koonika and Mt Speculation?

Thanks Hopey1.
Bogong, you've more than likely been through the area. Snowshoes are Northern Lites Backcountry Rescue weight: 1.2Kg pair. from Prolific Sports (prolific.com)

Taken from in between Picture Point and Magdala after you have walked down all the crappy loose rocks and been chased by the cows.

Looking at R-L Spec, Buggery, Crosscut and Magdala.

Well done JAM.
We (a VMTC trip) got dropped off under Frankland Saddle late afternoon and this was the only 'campsite' available. The following day we climbed onto the range and began the 9 day walk back to Serpentine Dam.

Nice. Kinda reminds me of cooking in the intertidal zones in alaska to keep the food smells away from the bears.

As the song goes, 'we'll never ever get Lake Peddar back'.

Looks like from the top end of the Traveller Range. The pointy mountain is Pelion East, with Ossa (obscured) just to the left. In the middle foreground is it Ducane Gap and Falling Mountain (on left)?

Yeah my guess isnt right, as from Solomans youd be looking into the walls, not out of them back to overland track.

Me? - too soft for that, I always walked around the bogs and avoided shorts because I hated sunburn. I've been up most of these peaks and have a photographic memory. These days the boots are hanging up and I'm found sipping coffee in Salamanca. My youngest is becoming a trooper, so the retirement might be shortlived, see you on the track
