At first I thought it was Barn Bluff from the north west - near Recondite or Brewery - now I'm wondering about maybe Pelion East from west or north west - maybe from Pine Forest Moor near Pelion West?

Your first thought was correct in terms of the mountain, but too far away, and not nearly well enough trodden.

on the OLT near the turnoff to Scott Kilvert? I'm only guessing because BB hides when I am near.

Close enough, Last. It's actually before Fury River, but you're in the ballpark I was after. It's a great view of BB along there. Sorry you haven't got it yet!

Guessing the clue might refer to Bobs Knobs, but I have no idea where from.

Yep. Pretty close. About half hour to the south of Mesa's summit. Some very remote views from here.

Were you trying to traverse across to Alexandra? I'd be interested to know a bit about what you encountered however far you went.

No. We had another plan. Although we got a bit of a look and photos of some of the route to Alexandra.

Clue time. I thought folks would pick up on the popular Abel on the far right horizon. (Edit: but I guess the profile is different from the usual one.) I'm on another one, having done the harder yards. And we had an easy walk up another the next morning.

Yeah, Frenchmans at the back corner is obvious, but I can't work out the lakes below.

Only thing I can think of is looking over Lake Anne from somewhere up on Slatters.

There's a good reason for that! Up there on top of Slatters, looking over Lake Anne we were.

It's been too long since I was up on that one, and the overriding memories from that trip were of the weather returning to the northern plateau. Have to go back and see what it's like down on KWIII when the viz is over 5metres.

Next.

The timber suggests Lake Gordon maybe... Boyes Basin looking up to Stepped Hills/Dome Hill?

Lake Gordon, but this shot was taken this month. Boyes Basin is only accessible by boat.

In other news, that isn't Stepped Hills in the shot. Clear Hill is visible from here, but we're looking in a different direction.

Oh come on. You don't have to walk to get here, or to use a boat, although people do take boats here.
