Mt Buffalo Plateau : Sunday, January 21

After the cancellation of the early January walk at Myrtleford (due to the extreme heat) Karen’s Buffalo Plateau walk was most timely, and 11 enthusiastic club members ambled around in mid 20’s temperatures while Wangaratta sizzled!!

We completed a series of short easy walks totalling about 7kms, which were combined into a loop in the vicinity of Lake Catani and the Gorge.

After lunch in the shade beside the old cricket pitch near the Chalet, and a final effort ascending the Monolith, most of us cooled off in the gorgeous clean lake. The water was perfect – about 22 degrees, and was being enjoyed by lots of smiling families.
