Day 3

Day 3 - Canyon 1

We headed off to check out another nearby creek. Canyon formation high up in the creek

Rich in the canyon


Unfortunately the canyon opened out into a neck, and we had head high ferns to wade through...

... as well as large swathes of raspberry to avoid! Don't fall Rich!

Rich climbing through a hole at a massive boulder blockup - note the raspberry

Below the block up, Sue climbing down through another hole

Rachel and Sue - the creek below the boulder block up was a nice steep gorge, but not canyon

It finished with this pretty waterfall, which we were able to walk around

Day 3 - Canyon 2

After returning to camp, Rich, Rachel, Sue and I went off to explore a couple of nearby creeks. Rachel in the first creek that we were trying to use as a pass. It turned into canyon

After some scrambling in the top of the canyon, we make it out on to the ridge
