Millions of years old rock sits exposed in the fantastic plateau of Ben Lomond – the forever impressive dolerite columns facing most directions, with it’s silhouette impressing from the approach. This time it was to Stacks Bluff from the south, home to the ‘sixth highest’ point in the state, and a total wilderness hiking delight.

The sun dipped low on its winter arch, the night was windy as all get out with its classic plateau crispness. I’ll write about it one day, for now I need a shower.


The Ben Lomond National Park – where these photos were taken – is the traditional lands of the Plangermaireener tribe. I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of these lands and waters on which I was able to traverse, learn, and appreciate – and pay respect to the First Nations Peoples and their elders, past, present and future.
