 There was very little water, just an occasional pool and we made good progress for quite a time. However we were then confronted with a very deep drop (which in normal times is probably a lovely fall) and it was clear that we must leave the bed of the creek. By this time the cliffs on the far side were in sight and we felt that we must reach the Wollangambe after having got so near. We climbed out to the left and were fortunate in finding a reasonably simple way down. There was very little water, just an occasional pool and we made good progress for quite a time.

-Wollangambe Creek is delightful. Lots of water rushes between large boulders, sparkles over rapids and then lies in deep pools reflecting the high imposing cliffs. We had a swim and began rock hopping. It is a mile an hour country, and the trip altogether might be described as a five day test walk! The following morning we arrived at the junction of Bowens Creek, where we camped in a most delightful cave, situated about twenty feet above water level and with a soft sandstone floor and high roof. It was here decided that rather than go on to the Colo we would attack the ridge and see if there was any chance of our climbing it the follbwing ​day. We had no difficulty for some hundreds of feet and then came to a corner where there were good hand and foot holds but it was necessary for your body to hang out in space in a somewhat awkward manner. To express it mildly Grace did not care for the look of this manoeuvre and as by this time it was getting dark it was decided to turn back and risk the balance of the climb the following day.+Wollangambe Creek is delightful.

 It was much harder work next morning with packs, and Dorothy'​s pack was so heavy that each time it had to be lifted up a chimney or ledge, it had to be partly unpacked - gunny sacks and tent removed - and this of necessity made for slow going. Uttering encouraging words to my companions I dashed ahead in energetic fashion and again and again had to leave them perched on a narrow ledge whilst I went ahead and found negotiable ways up. I found later that they did not appreciate these waits. Grace sang every song she knew to keep her spirits up and as Dorothy looked down to the water some hundreds of feet below, her only comfort was that as we had no ropes (and therefore were not mountaineering) her personal accident policy would operate if the worst befell her. She also tried to imagine the discomfort of any coroner who might have to come out and view the scene of the accident! It was much harder work next morning with packs, and Dorothy'​s pack was so heavy that each time it had to be lifted up a chimney or ledge, it had to be partly unpacked - gunny sacks and tent removed - and this of necessity made for slow going.

 I have seldom seen such a grand and impressive view and it ranks very close to Kanangara in my estimation. The top of the ridge for some distance is not more than 20 feet and it sweeps back somewhat like the prow of a ship. The creeks come together through the high cliff walls and then go out through another gorge to join the Colo. Needless to say we had not carried water up the ridge and we continued on until we reached the camp site above the creek we had climbed down. This was about 2.30 and we had not bothered about lunch. I have seldom seen such a grand and impressive view and it ranks very close to Kanangara in my estimation.

-Grace nobly offered to go down the gulley and get water, and Dorothy arranged to have a rest and meet her half way up and help with the water bags. In due course they set forth and I occupied myself making an arrow in stone to indicate to future parties where to turn off for water, etc. Dorothy returned about an hour after leaving camp but without Grace. Despite continual calling, and taking different routes going and coming she had missed her but naturally expected to find her in camp.

 When we were about half way up we heard a shout but didn't like to look down as we had as much as we could do to hang on. Once my friend Bill's foot slipped and he slid down two blocks of granite but then he got a good grip and managed to pull himself up again. We kept plugging on steadily until we reached the level of the little windows in the side and decided to switch over from here to the underneath of the roadway. It was rather a ticklish job getting ourselves round the corner but Bill has double jointed knees and ankles and it's wonderful the things he can do. Once we were round the corner we found there was nothing else for it, we'd have to make a leap to get to the nearest steel stanchion. How Bill managed to turn from facing in towards the rock, I don't know, but he did. When we were about half way up we heard a shout but didn't like to look down as we had as much as we could do to hang on.

-By this time we gathered that there must be a fair crowd down below, there seemed to be a lot of noise and the policeman kept shouting quite rudely at us. We took no notice and Bill tensed himself for the leap. Lightly he sprang, giving himself a push off from a good half-inch heel hold. For one awful moment be tottered in mid-air, but making a superhuman effort he jerked himself forward and just made it. He then tied the rope securely to the stanchion and swung the other end back to me. There wasn'much of a place to tie it but right in the middle of one block I was able to tie a double clove hitch and got ready to go hand over hand across to Bill.+By this time we gathered that there must be a fair crowd down below, there seemed to be a lot of noise and the policeman kept shouting quite rudely at us.

 First I had a look down below and saw the policeman had multiplied himself to hundreds and crowds of other folk were mixed in. Then I noticed a boat anchored right under us and chaps with hoses as though they were preparing to aim at us. Why, I couldn'​t understand. First I had a look down below and saw the policeman had multiplied himself to hundreds and crowds of other folk were mixed in.

 The destruction of the soundness of the timber, and the development of knots are the two things that make bush fires fatal to a forest. The development of a strong young crop of seedlings or "​regrowth",​ is what makes a bush fire beneficial. Foresters often try burning-off to effect the same result, but somehow man-controlled fires do not seem to have the same effect as the uncontrolled and far fiercer heat of the bush fire. Next time you plunge through a nasty thicket of young gum-trees, so close together your rucksack frame gets stuck in the stems, don't curse, just say "what a magnificent young regrowth; I wonder if it was caused by a bush fire." The destruction of the soundness of the timber, and the development of knots are the two things that make bush fires fatal to a forest.

Antares lies near the northern end of the constellation in a position which might be described as Scorpion'​s neck (if scorpions can be said to have necks). To the right of Antares, stretching right across the Milky Way, is a large loop of bright stars, the end of the loop curving downwards towards the horizon.
