(Part 3 of 4, 6 photos) – On and on to “The Rocking Stone”, along the South Track from kunanyi / Mt Wellington summit.
Above is an image showing the “track” I was following. Some care and experience is needed to navigate the terrain and protective clothing should be carried as the weather can change abruptly up here. The mountain is 1271 metres high and very exposed. There are few places to take shelter if it comes in nasty.
I sat down to have a drink and some lunch before heading back when I was joined by a local mountain Bennetts Wallaby. They have longer and thicker fur than the one’s that live around my home. It must be a pretty tough life for them at this altitude, but it seemed healthy and curious.
One more post to go in this series on my first walk with the new digital OM-1, as I head back to the mountain summit and my car. Thanks for joining me and my new friend.
