Thanks cams, I wanted to take more but the rain put a bit of a stop to it. Everything was soaked including my lens cloth by the time I was half way there so in the end I was just smearing water around the lens. It was frustrating standing there looking at massive antarctic beech rising up through the mist and not being able to take a photo because of the rain. It had me wondering whether a small umbrella would be worth taking along but that could be tricky in itself.
It took me 9 hours from the Green Mountains campsite but that was with minimal stops, maybe 15 minutes at the end of he canyon while I had a snack and a few quick stops on the way to drink or take some snaps. I didn't bother stopping to remove leeches or it would have taken twice as long, they were just as bad as on my last visit, teeming...
for posting your photos and trip report. It was good to see the rock I sunbaked on 45 years ago is still there
45 years... that gives it a bit of perspective, I was minus 10 years old! The angle is a bit different between the two photos but it probably hasn't changed much at all. It's not the biggest catchment feeding into the upper section of the Albert River but I bet it's experienced some wild water in it's time judging from some of the large trunks sitting up on boulders along the creek. It looks like the same tree behind the rock you were sitting on is still there too so it's done well.
ALWAYS be yourself.
Unless you can be outside, then ALWAYS be outside.
