I like the shadow on the rock. A nice original composition.

Reading your log I agree, it's a long haul from Wilson Bight to Window Pane Bay. I too arrived totally stuffed and badly dehydrated. I'd planned to break it in two and camp on the summit of SW Cape Range. But there was almost no water on the whole range (this was in Feb 09) and certainly not a drop anywhere near the summit when I arrived at about 3pm. With no water, camping there was not an option and I pressed on to Window Pane Bay, another 3 1/2 hours away, waterless, arriving around 6:30pm. Breaking out of that gloomy forest suddenly after 10 hard hours from Wilson Bight, on top of a pristine white dune with a sparkling sunlit sea before me, was one of the finest sights I have ever seen!
