|My meagre vocabulary can't really do justice to the scene this morning.|
|Time to pack up, I suppose.|
|There were lots of granite slabs to descend first thing this morning.|
|The second saddle with littered with big rocks.|
|Down in the valley I was looking for an old 4wd track.|
|Hidden Lagoon, unfortunately it's dry more often than not nowadays.|
|Link Track climbed a little before descending in earnest.|
|Langhi Ghiran Track made for quick walking this afternoon.|
According to my GPS I walked 11.8 kilometres and climbed 94 metres on what I’d class a medium grade days walking. Over the two days of my Mt Langhi Ghiran adventure I walked 20 kilometres and climbed 640 metres on his medium grade walk. Most people do this stroll as day walk, if I was doing the complete circuit in a day then it would be a hard days walking. This is a surprisingly good walk, I was thinking that the bivy on the summit and the views would be the highlight and they were, but this walk isn’t a one trick pony, the valleys to the south of the summit are wild and beautiful spots, so much so that I’m already thinking about heading back and exploring one that I missed on this walk. I got by on this walk with Mr Tempest’s notes and map out of his Daywalks Around Victoria book, the parks notes and my GPS maps, however as a fair chunk of the two day walk is off piste it pays to have more information than you’ll think you’ll need, not less. The off track stuff requires a bit of concentration, particularly picking the saddle to pass through to pick up the spur running down to Hidden Lagoon.
