 Then I'​thought back to my introduction to skiing in the glorious days of Illawong. "Put them (the skis) on with the pointed ends at the front" said Snow Brown, our fearless leader "​There'​s Twynam up there; letts go." . Getting up there was easy enough with skins on the skis, and once there, two thousand vertical feet and three miles from the hut, you just had to learn how to ski downhill. There'​s nothing like total commitment. Then I'​thought back to my introduction to skiing in the glorious days of Illawong.

-+The Murray Gorge seemed a fine idea. The only information ​I could find on the Murray Gates, as the Gorge is called, was an article in 77alk" the Jouranl of the Melbourne Bushwalkers for 19525 which described a walk from Coleman'​s flat to Tom Groggin, following where possible the track shorn on the current S.M.A. map. This track when it could be found, aid not approach closer than a couple of hundred vertical feet to the river until it reached the top and of the Gates. Wading upstream was implied to be extremely difficult and the scrub around the river was formidable.

 Griff had lived at Corryong for some years ana had fished at various spots on either side of the main Gorge. Generally, the river could be approached at specific places but progression up .r downstream was hampered by the steep sides of the Valley and the' thorny scrub liberally laced with blackberries. The locals, of course, laughed at the idea of getting the canoes through. Griff had lived at Corryong for some years ana had fished at various spots on either side of the main Gorge.

 My own experience of the river was limited to a memory of the Murray at Bringenbrong which didn't help much and at Tom Groggin where it is an amiable though swiftly moving stream about forty feet wide and, at this time of the year, a couple of feet deep. My own experience of the river was limited to a memory of the Murray at Bringenbrong which didn't help much and at Tom Groggin where it is an amiable though swiftly moving stream about forty feet wide and, at this time of the year, a couple of feet deep.

 It was after three, on a steaming hot day when we pushed off. The first obstacle, just downstrePm, was a six foot waterfall clown which the canoes were roped. Then we enjoyed an easy paddle to the bridge which was a few feet above the water. It might have been three feet, but it looked a lot loss. It was obvious that if the canoe rose in the water for any reason I'd whack my head on the bridge, We stopped to wait for the others and to have a closer look for hazards. In the middle of the steam below the bridge was a large boulder. My imagination ran wild  if we didn2t hit our heads, we'd be so busy not hitting them that wets lose control and bolt into the boulder. It was after three, on a steaming hot day when we pushed off.
