Western Plains Traverse - Victorian Alps NP

Postby Pika » Mon 20 Apr, 2015 7:32 pm

Hi everyone,

Finally got around to writing up our latest trip.

As always the Victorian Alps were stunning.

A challenging trip due to injury.

The 30km limp out was tough.

I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the report......

Would it be worthwhile strapping the ankle prior to starting the walk??

Thanks weeds.

We are investing in an ankle support.

We will see how it goes.
