Mount Mueller and a mid-winter walk

Mount Mueller is a 1245 meter mountain in two parts: There’s the eastern part of the mountain, which you reach first after a solid climb; and, there’s the western part which is the true peak, about 1.6km or so further along and crucially 5 meters taller.

Mount Wedge on a cloudy Good Friday

Cloud and trees
I had hoped the weather would clear for my walk up Mount Wedge, but I began to have some serious doubts as I passed Maydena and saw rain on the windscreen and dark clouds above.

The Thumbs and Clear Hill in a day (nearly)

Stepped Hills bathed in light
The Thumbs and Clear Hill haven’t exactly been on my walking to-do list. It’s not because I didn’t want to visit them. It’s just that I had never really even known about them. A massive shame really, because it’s such a beautiful, spectacular place.

Regular readers of this blog will know that Dash and I seem to like to do walks that are long, remote and often psychologically painful. So when planning for this one, we were after something a little easier and relaxing.

But as usual, even the best, well intentioned ideas go awry.

Mount Field East (circuit)

It was time to visit Mount Field again… but this time it was time to tackle something new: Mount Field East.

The weather was lovely, and the maps were waterproof.

Frenchman's Cap - December 2020

I have long wanted to walk to Frenchman’s Cap, I’ve just never been able to convince anyone to come with me.

And I couldn’t find anyone to come with me in December 2020 either, so I just went by myself. The weather forecast looked amazing. I had a weekend. Why not go?
