    Welcome aboard moosling. I'm going to get the ball rolling by suggesting its in VIC (there's a clear felled area top right. DOn't know vic well enough to know where it is though. IS it Mt Cobbler? (i mean the rocky one you see in the background of picies of craigs hut).

    If you're a fair dinkum weathergirl we look forward to getting you insights during the season in the weather forum. If you're one of those good looking imposters from the commercial channels we look forward to you posting some nude shots in the near future. :out:

    Thanks Snow Blowey - it is indeed in Victoria.

    Unfortunately my weathergirl-ing skills really lean more towards playing with data from weather satellites rather than applying it for forecasting.

    I can however leave you with the following nude shot for your viewing pleasure:

    mr: It's not the Buffalo plateau... it's a little closer to Melbourne that that.

    Memories of Torbrek under snow from a midnight ascent I did of it in 1992. We were bored at a party out in Lilydale so we jumped in the car, grabbed our stuff and drove, arriving at the top of Torbrek about 0400 in foot deep snow. Infact we had snow from the car! Those were the days. :clown:

    How about here for a few turns? Anyone?

    My understanding of the way stuff is done here, is that it has to be in Australia, with the occasional NZ piccy let through. I don't think it's in EnZed, so I'll guess...

    Mt Menzies, Australian Antarctic Territory?

    Yes it is, Majikthise got it. It is the valley of Chance Creek that runs down from Tantangara Mountain past Tantangara/Harveys Hut.

    Not Mt Menzies, although I can see the similarity, but close enough! It's in Enderby Land, well west of Menzies but still inside Australian Territory [​IMG]

    Mt Riiser-Larsen on the right and the pyramid shaped peak on the left is unnamed. Nothing else in the pic has a name!

    Next.

    Ok, its in Southwest Tas, is it somewhere on the Arthur Plains near the bottom of Luckmans Lead with the Eastern Arthurs in the background. The round peak on the left looks much like The Dial.

    Legend. In the vicinity of Lake Eucumbene (dam wall end) I think that is Tabletop in the distance, and you are somewhere near headwaters of the Gungarilin R. ?

    What happened?? Did the giraffes escape and chomp the thread to bits??
    VSG is correct with Tabletop. But it isn't anywhere near Gungarlin R. BTW what is the other mountain (you can't see it any more)?

    Other mountain is Far Bald Mountain, so the photo was taken from Farm Ridge.

    Legend, is the Farm Ridge fire trail still indistinct, or has NPWS run a dozer along it too?

    Way back in 2001 VSG gazed into his crystal ball and had a vision of this thread. Using supreme psychic powers he determined the location of a photo which was yet to be taken, produced a map of the area and posted it on the forums. His post has remained buried until this day... [​IMG]

    VSG, I believe that when you posted the image you upset the space-time continiuum :no: This transported the thread back to the 2nd of July 2001, burying it deep within the bowels of the Backcountry forum.

    My post bumped the thread back up through 5 1/2 years of giraffe-talk and threads discussing the merits of titanium sporks, to emerge back at the top of the heap once again [​IMG]

    Oh, and if you're wondering where I get 2nd July 2001 from, have a look at the date/time you posted your map. No wonder the forums got confused [​IMG]
