Mount Beauty weekend : Friday 24th to Sunday 26th November

Thirty two members signed up for this superbly organised Mt Beauty weekend.

On Saturday, about 9kms were covered by everyone, on a section of the Kiewa Hydro Scheme.

We were impressed by the engineering work involved with the 1960’s aqueduct and tramway near Clover Dam, with water being diverted from Bogong Creek into Clover Power Station.

On Saturday night a BYO BBQ was enjoyed, with the high point being the celebrations involved with Erin’s 50th birthday, and the consumption of a (possibly) one metre high kiwi fruit (with lots of added chocolate and strawberries) dominated pavlova!!

On Sunday, four walks were offered; easy walks around Mountain Creek car park, with a small group; another journey from the car park to the base of Eskdale spur; the climb up to Mt Emu and return, and finally the popular Bogong summit walk from Granite Spur.

A huge approaching storm prevented the group of 12 exploring other features of the Bogong Plateau, and they quickly descended without being rained upon.

Many Thanks to Bob and Judy Shaw for another great weekend of walking.
