Yes. We are actually ascending the track that drops down past Lake Hanson and then comes up onto the Twisted Lakes from the east.

That looks like Sirius - or possibly Pegasus - in the back. You wouldn't happen to be on the WArthurs traverse track, where it passes through that gap up on Capricorn, would you?

Yep that'll do. To be specific on the south side of the unnamed knoll immediately to the north of lions head, where the track passes through the two cliffs in the picture, looking at the features mentioned above.
