Mount Marian

Tuesday 19 August 2014

It is always a puff climbing up the Myrtle Forest track and it was good to arrive at the firetrail to see nice blue sky above Mount Marian. However a mere five minutes later it was grey and even a light scud could be seen there.

Nevertheless the day remained fine directly above us all day, relatively bright and with patches of sun.

A call into the Pineapple Grass field under Trestle for morning tea was made. After lunching on the summit we did a sweep of the plateau west of the summit, where amazingly an exotic pine was discovered. Fortunately Greg had a small handsaw and it was enough to cut the small tree down.
