Lindfield to Gordon: Lindfield - Swain Gardens - Seven Little Australians Park - Lindfield Rocks - Two Creeks Track - Middle Harbour - Pipeline Track - Barra Brui - Gordon [SBW][L]:After lots of rain overnight, the leeches were out in force in the early part of the day, and a couple of de-leeching stops were required. Charles is claiming victory with 9. In one place, the leader decided to follow the map rather than his experience. The track on the map petered out, requiring a bit of wandering around to regain the track. The description said "Rough bush track, hard to find in places" so ACCC will not be suing the leader for misleading advertising! The bonus of the unplanned exploration was that we got to see a small echidna waddling about. The section of the route along Middle Harbour is little visited, and we saw no-one on our side until we were almost back at the tourist tracks. The day heated up. By the time we got back to the road at Gordon, some people were happy to take the option of a bus back to the station. The remaining 7 walkers powered on to Gordon Station for a 1pm finish. Innocent civilians on the station were traumatised as Christian pulled off a fat leech, and proceeded to crush it in an explosion of blood.

Mt Solitary Cleanup: Golden Stairs - Cedar Gap - Mt Solitary - Chinamans Gully - return: We walked to Chinamans Gully picking up rubbish along the track and at all of the campsites along the way. Unfortunately there was a lot of toilet paper, both fresh and old, as well as unburied excrement on top of Mt Solitary and at Chinamans Gully. An abandoned campfire on Mt Solitary was still smouldering, with many recently burnt tins left sitting inside. It's hard to know what goes through some people's heads.

Mt Marooba Karoo: Dex Creek - Mt Cloudmaker - Roar - Mt Goowong - Mt Marooba Karoo - return: Part of the search for Sevak Simonian. We were dropped out at Dex Creek by helicopter, after 12pm. We needed to be back for pickup between 4pm and 5pm. We made it out to Mt Marooba Karoo, which was cliff lined and looked to have great views, but we didn't have time to take them in. We raced the 4km back to Dex Creek in 1h20 for our extraction.

Bullhead Ridge: Part of the search for Sevak Simonian. We walked out to Bullhead Ridge, and searched a number of small creeks off the western side. One unpleasant section in the middle of the day found us going about 400m in two hours through head high nettles, brambles and other prickly bushes, followed by a steep loose scramble up scree to escape. Thankfully the remainder of the creeks were not too bad.

High camp on top and beautiful night. Some more canyon exploration the next day, ending in a large drop into the valley which we backed out of. Had to abseil into a creek and out late in the afternoon.

Entrajo Canyon (Walk!): Paul had done "Music Canyon" in the foothills of the La Sal Range many years ago, so we set off to see if we could find it. After quite a lot of walking trying to find a pass, we ended up backtracking quite a way, and finding a route up on to the ridge ... but not down the other side! We settled for lunch, some views and some rock scrambling. Of course, back at the cars, Rachel found some notes on the canyon, which turned out to be Entrajo!

Pleiades Canyon (Walk): While the plan was to do Pleiades Canyon, a cold snap overnight had dumped several inches of snow on the ground, and the there was enough water flow for things to potentially get very cold very quickly. We settled for a walk in the snow, a novelty for us, and a look at the top and bottom of the canyon.
