have fun. im still not sure about one from no 4
Well we still have skifree's puzzle from the last thread:
Whilst that is under consideration here is something else. What area? Which track?
Is skifree's of Gammon ranges?
Craig D - looks like around licola
Not around Licola. It's a management vehicle only track - should help narrow things down somewhat
Hmmmm, Avon wilderness? But that's 'around' Licola. More thinking required.
Pinnibar area? (I think I might be seeing the Main Range on the far horizon.)
EDIT. Upon reflection, I think it's a bit too dry to be Pinnibar. My recurring nightmare of reliving a 3 day scrub-bash along the Hermit Range is coming back.
It's not the Cobberas, but somewhere near where the Snowy crosses the border is my revised guess.
Well done Bogong! It's the Nine Mile Pinch track - leaves the Barry Way at Pinch River and climbs almost 1000m before dropping into the valley of the Ingeegoodbee. The Pinch River is the valley at the bottom, and the hill behind it is the Charcoal Range.
The track is insanely steep in places - I had to zig-zag on the way up some of the anti-erosion humps due to lack of traction from my boots! The trip down by mountain bike is rather fun
Craig, you go to some wonderfully obscure places I'm surprised I fluked that one. It was more by eliminating any other location than by a an intimate knowledge of the area. I've only been there once.
Most of my photos are on CD and I'm supposed to be at work, so I'll post a fairly easy favourite. It was painted in the 1930's, by an ancestor of a bloke in my club, but nothing has changed.
That looks like Mt Ida on the side of Lake St Clair.
Correct Beeper, it's Mt Ida.
BTW. Are you the person who is a member of Wellington Ski Club? If so, please PM or email me, I can't find their phone number and we'd like to pay big bucks to hire it over Easter. Negotiations with four other clubs have fallen through, they don't want our money At this late stage we're prepared to pay silly amounts for any lodge (or preferably two lodges) at Mt Mawson.
Next picture please.
Sorry Bogong, I'm not in their club, their email details are at;
If you get no response, get back to me on the forum and I'll see if I can dig up a phone number for you.
Oh well, it must have been someone else around here. Gosh the Mt Mawson clubs make it hard! Only two have websites (Oldina & Uni, both knocked us back). All the others have the same GPO Box (Mail not answered for over a month) and a phone no with a winter recording on it and instructions not to leave any voice mail!
Well the hint is you can see mine from St Mary's Peak.
sidetrack, are we looking in tassie for your unremarkable pile of rocks?
I'd bet my right arm that scene couldn't be anywhere else! It looks a bit Ben Lomondesque.
Mines in Tassie and its not Ben Lomand. I really just wanted to stuff beeper up.
Excellent objective He seems to know everything in his home state. Bloody smartarse locals
sidetrack, reminds of maybe PB way.
VSG, yep it is the panorama as is the location it is taken from. The trick is it is an unusual viewing angle.
skifree, if PB is Preciptus Bluff then no. Its in the walls area.
Not sure of this one, could be Mt Ophion in the Walls.
Actually I have no idea what its called and I dont know where my map is. So to save us all the trouble its the wall on the left as enter the walls with Mt King David on the right.
I only had about 5 hours so I ran/walked to dixons and back with the camera. There was tons of ice, I imagine that a few days earlier would have been better.
Cliffs on Ophelia by the look of the map
Right of lake salome on this pano taken from mtjerusalem
So the answer would be cliffs of Ophelia taken from Herod's Gate, where the 'gate' is on the map. Sidetrack, i think you only stuffed up yourself.....
No its the Opelia ones. It well before that. Its smack on the letter e in the word gate near the 1st camp.
I think we are agreeing.
would it be as marked here? I think Opelia itself is hidden behind Zion Hill.
Yeah that would be it. Its a pretty magic place the walls. I actually enjoyed it more than Cradle probably because I was the only one there.
That is very cheeky putting up pics where you do not even know the location. :no:
That would be a different thread, the where was I cos I do not know either thread
I knew exactly where I was, I just didnt what it was called.
Somewhere near Kiandra and it runs into Lake Eucombine?
Sidetrack. That's good enough. Eucumbene River, a few k's downstream of Kiandra. Tabletop Mountain, and Jagungal, are over the ridge in the background.
Nice stream for a 4 weight & a Geehi cocktail.
mmmm.. pity I was only carrying a 7, some Snowy hoppers and brown nymphs. Flow was less strong than usual: drought.
7 wght? What were you after, Marlin?
Ok Im dragging the bottom of the barrel here with the pics but until I get my slides back?
Upper Crackenback/Thredbo River between Dead Horse and Chimney Pots?
Bogong - my thoughts exactly.
BTW, a great MTB ride is from there, all the way down to the Nine Mile Pinch, and then descend the Nine Mile. loses 1000m altitude in about 9 k's. Ripping. About 60k's all up.
You will need a car shuffle unless the crawl out up the Barry Way is also your idea of a good time (add another 60 approx).
Hmm. I was thinking the link road between Smiggins and Guthega.
#7 ! a twig ! /hijack/ how's the lakes ? I will be down for work in Jindy region next week, might try an evening on Euc near the dam. Taxman, what's wrong with a #7... goes well with my #9 and #10 I do have a five but am yet to cast it in pursuit of anything outside of Centennial Park. / end hijack/
The snowpoles are a big hint I didn't observe earlier, I suspect Exciseboy has it right.
i dont think so, the link road is in better nick than that from memory.
Looks like main track up to Bogong High Plains near Mt Nelse from Watchbed creek.
Not the last time I went up it...
Agree GS. Looks like Heathy Spur in background (taken before the 03 fires)
Agree x 3 w GS and legend
Long time since I was up there, but somewhere on Mt Buffalo?
