Today was a beautiful spring day. Just perfect for four Walkabouters to walk along the tracks in the Pyretes Range. We met at Merrimu Reservoir a few kilometers from the Range and saw a spectacular halo ringing the sun as it shone brightly through high clouds.
|It's a bit bright!|
|A more dramatic shot|
After a short drive we arrived the beginning of the Antinomy Mine Track.
We ducked under the gate and headed downhill,
ignoring the path with a quartz arrow pointing left,
and then uphill until we turned right onto Sugarloaf Track.
|Mt Blackwood and Xanthorrhoea|
|It was a bit steep!|
|Mt Sugarloaf in the distance|
|Turn off to the Summit|
And then we reached the Summit!
|Westerly view to Mt Blackwood|
Dare we go in if there is no exit??
|Is that a bridge?!|
|A more dramatic view|
Fortunately, it was not a bridge to far,
to get across.
|Antinomy mine entrance|
|A rocky outcrop|
|Dry creek bed|
|Some more ruins|
|Even more ruins|
And then we were back!
After a cup of tea it was time to drive home!
