The first selfy of Hugh and I at the gate before heading for the hills. The track is well marked but I must say you need a 4×4 to get through some of the creek crossing , even the Mitsi hit on a couple shorter creeks. We got to the start of our first hike and decided to climb the ridge then follow north but as it turned out we could see thr trig point way off to the north. With lots of ridge walking and trying not to lose any altitude once we had it was a bit tricky so we did lots of up and down anyhow until we could see a clear path to the correct hill.
It’s on a Hundred Boundary, those fins line up with a fence line going west for many kilometres, the land is subdivide into 100 square mile blocks that was the first survey methods back god knows when in the 1800’s.
Ian working the not so many left its always hard to get contacts when you go second. But we both got enough and headed back down in a much easier fashion than going up also we were able to work out an easier path for next time and cut time and distance of the journey.
We made it back to the ute then headed back to the homestead and start the search for Eke Hill to the south from where we came.
