What else is there to do on a rainy Sunday morning?

Note: I'm going to be picky about this one. This specific spot has a name.

Since they flashed up the track, the lookouts now have names. The highly imaginative Cape Lookout and Seal Lookout. As you can see from the evidence left, this is the latter, although Guano Lookout might be more appropriate.
Over to you, eggs.

I did not know about the lookout names, it is still on my to do list.

Keeping with the idea - the name of this please..

The Trident from the Oasis lookout?

We saw it from several vantage points - so I am not sure which one this was - but Yes, this is the Trident near Cape Pillar

This earlier reminded me of the Sentinel Range and I dismissed it, but eggs' comment has made me reconsider.

That would be Gould from the Guardians, thanks Eggs. I just can't figure out exactly where on the Guardians - can't get my pics to line up.

Sure is. The guy who took my basic geology course said no one was 100% certain exactly what created it.

This shouldn't be hard.

Humble apologies to Mr Heel. Shame he keeps so silent on maps. Looking forward to visiting him one day, though!
Next one shouldn't be too hard either:

Hmm, maybe the ~800 m bump below it to the NW (looks like those old trails go close by)?
Or Tim Shea? Although the angle doesn't look right.

Wrong directions, and I'm after a Bigger Bump nearby, which we were part-way up.
