Thanks. I think.

This should be easier. It's called "looking out my back door". Where was the tent?

I can see Twelvetrees from here, outside the tent.

Yep, terraces on the southern shoulder. Brilliant area for camping.

I remember clinging to the rocks in that area as the westerlies tried to blow me into the lake. Next.

Yes - I did not quite have that angle, so I wondered if you were down there.

That looks like Lot and Lightning Ridge. Are you near Pandani Shelf?

Yes NNW.
but Lightning Ridge is not in view. Lot [LHS] and Eve Peak [mid RHS] are though, along with the edge of Mt Anne.
We had explored out from Pandani Shelf and were quite close to Anna-a-kananda where we spied this extensive Cushion plant slope below.

Ahhh yes, think I know the patch of rock you're on. Great views from there. Also a good spot for a late lunch.

Started taking photos before getting out of the tent on this morning. Where?

Another tent shot, are you getting lazy? Looks like flame peak, are you at the font?

I've always been lazy. There are just times when it's more obvious.

Just above. Better camping on that little shelf than down below.

I've made a career out of laziness. This one is from just outside the tent door.

We went through and explored it this year picking up water there.

Talking about staying in the tent and taking photos - I like to get up and wander around, but my friend had no such desires.

No cryptic clues in that. This sunrise led to a sunny day with a return trip to a very sweet spot.
We had visited the peak in view the day before and then sidled around it to our camp. It may have been easier to have traversed over the top again.
