    Sorry it must be from the NW cnr of the pound on account of the lumpiness in the foreground.

    I have a poster at work showing that range and it describes it as "Elder Range - SA".

    It's easy to load a photo. Load a photo on a free website like http//:darb.net/anonymous. (It has instructions so it's fairly easy).

    Then copy the pics "properties" to your clipboard. When you want to post it in this forum type [​IMG].

    Re drinks, hikes etc. It looks like I'm free this weekend (but I am chasing a woman, so if she's available... ) Otherwise I'm happy to meet up anywhere in the inner suburbs :cheers:

    VSG, you are about the right mark. More likely Beatrice from memory of the wander. I would have to some review of the pics taken on the wander to be more precise.

    My next choice is Kunama Hut Site from below a little looking back at the rocks that overhang.

    Hmmm second thoughts the right hand side does not look quite right.

    Well, Alice Rawson is close, but not from Abbot Ridge.

    Clue: creek in foreground runs into a very well known Lake.

    No but Snow Blowey is the closest. It doe sappear in the google sat pic i posted.

    A fabulous range to just sit and watch change colour as the Sun moves across the sky from Dawn to Dusk. Although dusk is the best time to watch the range.

    Yep looks like a top spot. Nice colours in the photos. Unfortunately i'll need a VSG map to have any chance because i've never been to SA.

    Chace Range...from VSG's map from a couple of pages back? You are either looking south (if sunset) or north if sunrise. More likely the former.

    Yep the Chace Range. In sunset. I have very very few pics of sunrise. Although we almost always camp ontop of the ridges to try and see the Dawn. All the regular campsites are for reasons I cannot fathom are in the bottoms of the valleys. Stupid really. Except it would be a bucket of erosion to run a road up. Even foot traffic has caused serious erosion at some locations such as Heysen Hill. I'll spare you folks any more boring pictures of desert for till next thread.
