It took a while to disengage mentally from the Nelse area.

Presuming that is a reference to the Coorong - this is a long way from the ocean :)

I am afraid I cannot place Scalloped Bay - the campsite we were at was called Halligan Bay Point on Lake Eyre.

I had trouble placing the background - but figured I could see the Falls Creek mast at back.
And yes - the rocks assisted.

Yes - this was sunrise from Mt McLeod.
A nice spot to get away from it all.

You've correctly worked out where I'm looking at, but the closest summit to me is the Crown nest.

A fast game is a good game and if someone other than Eggs gets it right for a change I'm all for that!

Take it away tyreless!
