Not Hooker but you are in the right locality. This one has a tenuous link with your home state.

That would have to be Mueller lake then, Just kidding, Tasman lake?

Both names do have a connection. We have Mt Mueller as well as some vague connection with Tasman.

I've had a good look at Mt Mueller from The Needles but not been up it.
Yes, Tasman Lake is what I was alluding to, most of which is over my left shoulder. Yours again Last.
