Snowy times

I had hoped to get out for a few adventures in the snow this winter, particularly some overnighters, but time sped by and I only managed one day learning to cross-country ski at Lake Mountain (with great snow) and an overnight snowshoe trip to Mt Stirling (with rapidly melting slushy snow).

Lerderderg Gorge

I’d known about Lerderderg Gorge for a few year but always assumed it would be a fairly wretched place. Anyway, I finally went there for a day walk recently and it was great! A beautiful river, steep climbs, rugged rocky country and great views. And a pretty interesting weir. I think it might be pretty horrible in hot weather though. It does have a reputation for being somewhat of a snake pit.
