Lay Day

Today was designated as a lay day but there was certainly now laying about for the Walkabouters!

Here are a few photos of where we went and what we saw.

Following the road to Omeo, our first stop was near Cope Hut.

View toward Cope Hut

A small rocky outcrop provided a view across the plains.

Near Cope Hut are Maisie's Plots. It was a short walk across the road for a good view of these plots that assisted in the establishment of the Alpine National Park.

Then it was on to Buckety Plain and Faithfulls Hut. It was a steep and rocky path that lead down to the hut but it was well worth the visit.

We enjoyed lunch on the Buckety Plain

and photographing the abundant flora.

After a short drive further drive down the road, we ventured onto a 4WD track that lead to McNamara's Hut.

After visiting all the accessible huts for the day, it was time to visit the Ruined Castle.

The final stop for the day was Mount McKay. Here are some views from the top.

And then it was time to visit the coffee shop.

A good lay day to whet the appetite for more walking tomorrow.
