A trip to the South Masson Range
Darron, Jeremy and Peter C headed out one afternoon early last month, driving the blue Hagglund up to Rumdoodle Hut where we spent a pleasant evening devouring Fray Bentos pies and playing chess. At around midnight, a spectacular aurora suddenly appeared for well over an hour, giving us the opportunity to spend some quality time out on the plateau in calm conditions to admire and photograph the celestial display above us.
We arose early the next morning, and departed in near dark conditions. Before too long, we had arrived at the base of Trost Peak. We admired the sun rising and skirting the horizon, as we firstly climbed to the top of Trost Peak and then circumnavigated it via the surrounding wind scours and lakes.
We then headed further afield south into the heart of the South Masson Range, eventually parking up at a lake from where we circumnavigated Mt Burnett.
