Crocodile Rock

We woke this morning to the pitter patter of raindrops on the tent. Not rain but precipitation nonetheless. It took us a while to warm up last night but our bags did the trick and midway through the night some heat had to be let out.
The day was a bit foggy to start and as we headed off to see the sights of The Grampians it became clear to us, not the weather, that several of the lookouts we had planned to visit would be covered in mist. First off was Reed's Lookout. From here we could see all the way to the fence. Check out Jaks' video to get an idea of the viz. Sooo we gave up on lookouts and headed for waterfalls. McKenzie was its name and it was a nice one. Several ledges dropping 30 or so meters.
Leaving the hills behind we motored on to the town of Horsham. A nice place and much bigger then we had thought. Here we made a new purchase. Crocs gumboots! Very light and great for wearing around the fire and that midnight dash to the bushes.
In the distance we could see the rising crags of Mt Arapiles. This is somewhere I have wanted to go since I got interested in climbing many summers ago.
A short drive through Natimuk saw us in the climbers campground. Unfortunately there were several school groups there and the camp itself was not great so we decided to move on. I would love to come back for a while and do some climbing here. Lovely sandstone cliffs all over the place.
Looking at the map we found a camp at Horseshoe Bend just outside Dimboola. That had our name on it and we promptly headed north. A few good dirt roads saw us mooring up in a very pleasant little spot.
Tomorrow sees us heading somewhere closer to Loxton in SA to pick up our sliders on Saturday or Sunday.
