Collins Bonnet and Hut

Tuesday 26 May 2020

It was frosty and valley fog was present for the drive to Myrtle Forest. It was clear there at the start and once over the final crossing of Myrtle Forest Creek we were in warm sun and with no wind we were feeling the sweat by the time we stopped for morning tea at the old hut site on the track.

After visiting the Collins Bonnet summit we left the tracks and walked through the heathland to the north to the remnants of an old hut and lunch in the delightfully warmth.   Fog could be seen still sitting all up the Derwent Valley.
