South Wellington Plateau from Big bend

Thursday 21 January 2010

The weather was  a delight..  We left Big Bend and skirted the plain, crossed to Dead Island and then scrambled up to South Wellington plateau.  Several vantage points were visited before crossing the middle of the plateau, past numerous pools and then walked over the summit plateau and descended back to the cars.

It was most noticeable that the top of the mountain had heaps of water, with pools all full and streams running; this in mid summer.
