Down to the Kowmung River

In early November, Jen and Marko and I commenced a hike from the Kanangra walls.

Our hike started from an altitude of 1000m and from within the clouds.

Just a little south of the stone caravan, we made our campsite and made fire.

After a very steep descent, we arrived at the Kowmung River. The water was crystal clear and almost entirely trout-free. We shared campsite overlapped with the territory of a very large wombat. As well, we found a red-bellied black snake sunning itself on the rocks near our fishing spot.

Here, I relax with a mug of whisky by a handsome campfire and think positively about the gruelling climb ahead of us the following day.
