Ideal mid-winter trampingchrome track 2020 07 12
Chrome Track Circuit – Sunday 12 July 2020

 

We all started from the Hacket carpark about 9:30am. An hour later we were halfway up to the saddle, on the Chrome Track, having morning tea in warm sunlight. Once we made the saddle, I checked out the water supply for the weed spraying, before we walked the Chrome Road to the picnic table where we checked out the second water supply. Onward to lunch at the Chrome mines. With a hint of rain, some explored the mines and checked out the cave wetas. Whispering Falls was the last destination with a cold creek crossing to get there. Lots of photos were taken before the short climb to the picnic spot above the falls. The final leg was returning to the cars by 2:15pm. The day was cool and varying from sunny to very light rain, ideal for mid-winter tramping. 

The group included Joy, Sue J, Paula W, Paula C, Julian, Ian W, Ross, Thu, Anthea, Bernard, Gail, Di, Maria and Rob (scribe).
