Mount Dromedary

Monday 13th June 2016

We went for a hike up to Mount Dromedary today. The outward leg was via the normal route and then up the west face which was a little slippery in places due to the wet rocks. Up at the trig marker on the summit it was blowing a gale and it was trying to blow us off our feet. We did not waste too much time here and headed over to the eastern lookout for lunch in a somewhat more  sheltered spot. I decided to head back down the southern track because it provides a much more gentle slope with less likelihood of accidents. This proved to be a good idea. Once we reached the old road we headed back to the car via the track that runs to the western side of Little Marsh. I always like to walk this section because it has a nice feel about it. The creek that drains the Marsh was running really well.
This a really good walk with 360 degree views from the summit. I did not take many photos as there are plenty in previous posts.
Distance: 16.0 kms.
Time: 6'18"
