That looks like Trout Lake down below. Are you near the summit of Mt Weld?

Someone else please post. I thought "somewhere in the WA'S" was an opening gambit, not a winning move.

No.
It's not on the OT, it's not Wurragurra, it's not on the Frenchmans track, but that still leaves a hell of a lot of options.

True. It is on a well-known multi-day walk. Well, you may not technically have to cross the said bridge if you're on that track, but most folks would detour the few metres to have a look anyway. Plenty of other people enjoy the short walk to it.

I keep thinking about the footbridge over the Leven off Loongana Rd, but I thought the river was a lot wider there.

Nope, it's a lot wider before and after, but that's it. Our Belgian friend passed that way not too long ago. :)

Denison is a bit closer but still a ways off. And that's the . . . ooops, nearly told you what that range in the back actually is. That wouldn't do, would it?

Looks like the Spires through Pokana and Denisons - all from somewhere well north.

Thanks NNW. I was only up there in May, should have recognised it sooner. Thanks to Eggs for the hints. Next
