Sorry Tortoise. I didn't.

Are you comfortable because you're sitting in a 4WD on the Snug Tiers?

It's surprisingly lovely up there. Although the 4WD mob seem to look strangely upon anyone who gets out of their vehicle to do something like walk, or bird watch.

Not much on me currently, but did walk into here recently to chase wild trout.

This one joins the Huon, not far from where the Picton does, but from the opposite side

Not the Styx, that flows into the Derwent.
I know the Denison River has trout. Is that where you were?

I think I meant Russell River, the one that flows through Lonnavale.

The Denison does have trout, but I was elsewhere. This one flows close to a mountain of the same name.

The Weld it is. Once you get upstream past the forestry coupes, there's actually some really nice scenery and vegetation.

That's Ms Granger down there, so I assume you're climbing to the Hugel plateau.

ETA: With a closer look, starting the descent from the Hugel plateau.

Scenery first and foremost. The people are just an unwanted distraction.

Spot on. On our way down to spend the evening with Ms Granger.

Well, it was nice to see a distinctive feature - is that Barn?

If so, I thinking it might be an unnamed lake in the vicinity of Agnew. But that's probably not nearly obscure enough! :wink:

Yes, that is Barn Bluff.
No, it is not in the vicinity of anything named Agnew. Nor is the lake unnamed, though it may be a little obscure.
