Even nicer in daylight :)
It's 12 years since I've done that hike but I would love to again. (The creek was thigh deep at the cove that day.)
I dislocated my shoulder down near the Deep Creek mouth in the 1970's and had to "swim" across it ...and uphill until a 4WD ambulance was found,
Ouch! How did you dislocate it?
Was very nice there. Doing the loop in the opposite direction might've made better use of the light.
Did you start out with the waterfall? We all stayed in a cottage at Deep Creek for Christmas 1993, with my grandparents, and there had been an inch of rain the week beforehand so the walk to the waterfall was lovely.
We've met women this week who have just walked the Larapinta Trail as rogaine training - oh dear, I'm feeling a little outclassed. At least the forecast is for 21 on Sat/Sun (compared to 30 on Fri).
Larapinta sounds good training and interesting too.
What a nice idea to have Christmas at Deep creek. Waterfall was impressive last Saturday.
