Pikes Flat and Mt Sunday - 10-12 April 2010


Lingering fog over farmland hills on the way to Mansfield


Hitting the tracks for the first time on this trip


Peering down at the Delatite Valley


Foggy 8 Mile Gap


In need of a wash


Slippery and treacherous 16 Mile Jeep Track


Keeping warm by the fire


Campsite at Pikes Flat by the Howqua River


The Bluff making an appearance amidst the fog


Serene Jamieson River


Mountains jutting into the clouds


Climbing towards Mt Sunday


View from atop Mt Sunday


Snowing one minute, fine the next at the Mt Sunday summit


Descending Mt Sunday


Climbing back up towards The Low Saddle


Seeking refuge from the rain and taking up residence in the cosy hut at Pikes Flat


Trout fishing


Crossing the Howqua River at Pikes Flat


Track maintenance


Crossing the Howqua River at Bindaree Flat


Splashing through puddles along the Upper Howqua Road


Driving into the abyss that is alpine mist
