Eidsvold to Mount Perry via Markoola, Lands End and Allen

Got up early to have an early start. It sort of worked. I left the campground at 7:15 rather than 7:30. We headed out, back the way we came and then turned off.

Monto to Eidsvold Via Abercorn and Ceratodus

The tent wet from the fog in the morning. I had breakfast and packed up. Headed out from Monto. I found I was missing the hood from the lens.

Rockhampton to Mount Morgan Via Gracemere

Not many photos from this day. Not enough really, but it was raining lightly all day, so the camera spent most of it’s time in the water proof bag. I heard the rain falling overnight.
