Where's the damn Snow?

Leaving Canberra on Tuesday afternoon we headed back out north in order to loop round and come into the Snowy Mountains from the top.

The temperatures we're still in the high 30's so not surprisingly the snow was non-existant, the scenery was stunning regardless however, although a little hard to picture any of it covered in snow!

We made good time through the ups and the downs and the round and the rounds and with no fixed place to stop for the night it was left to the threat of running out of petrol for the decision to be made for us. To say we lucked out would be an understatement.

Just before leaving Sydney we picked up a large road map which includes a list of all of the rest stop and tucked away free camping spots for the whole of Australia...it's already been a godsend as the spot in the Snowy Mountains just outside of a small town was simple stunning.

After a dip in the creek to wash off the toils of the day we settled down to prepare some dinner and spend the night in this stunning setting - now this is what travelling is all about.
