Jindabyne to Khancoban, Australian Alps, New South Wales.

(February 10 - 17, 2007)

A sign for Brumbies (horses) in the national park got me interested in seeing some, but they were not around.


Our campsite at Geehi Campground, my favorite place to camp.


A man fly fishing in the Geehi River near our campsite.


Cindie working on her journal at our campsite, people often wonder what I am doing on the computer out here.


The Christmas 2006 fires burned these trees, they will recover because they are eucalyptus or gum trees.


Trout in the Geehi River.


Cindie at Dead Horse Gap, about 1580 m or 5240 feet.
