#1: The spot

(visited by Stephan Theriault)

28-Jan-2007 -- After a lovely visit od Bald Knob National Park and a great climb on the mountain that bears the same name our journey through New England took us to Tenterfield. There is a confluence there and it's not like me to miss one if I can help it.

From the New England highway I turned east about 6 kilometres from Tenterfield than north on another secondary road which turned into a gravel road. I stopped at a house and the lady who lives there asked me whether I was lost, to which I replied that I actually knew exactly where I was... almost. I just needed a bit of help. She pointed to another dirt road behind her property. I had missed it on my way there. That road took me to just over a kilometre from the confluence and that was going to be good enough for me.

I hopped over a fence and walked with my GPS in hand. The terrain was flat and easy at first but there were a few shrubs and small trees to dodge. The a creek bed and an empty field. Jumping over another fence I got to the confluence, took the photos and headed back to my car and to my family. The kids were having fun in Tenterfield and I had just had my fun too. It's on to 30S 152E tomorrow according to our plans
