Walhalla to Jamieson via Mt Skene
We will run a trip to Mt Skene on the w/e of the 25-26 August - We have a permit for 10 cars for the two days.
We will meet in Walhalla on Saturday morning and head off North to the Heyfield-Jamieson Road via Aberfeldy and Mt Selma. We'll then follow the Heyfield-Jamieson Road to Mt Skene where we plan to camp. (I have threatened Sherry that if there is enough snow then we'll be camping in an igloo- last year the snow was excellent, but we arrived too late)). On Sunday we'll head out to Jamieson.
Meeting arrangements Walhalla 9:00 "sharp".
