Right! Onto the final lake. It’s way way up this valley. So let’s take a short cut down this ridge eh? Wey hey it’s easy! Time enough for some synchronised dancin’ ;)
After a little while… “Hang on a minute … This ‘shortcut’ is – rubbish!” Pushing through sharp bushes, dropping down deep holes from slippy boulders hmmmm :D
We took an I’ll advised cross-country ‘shortcut’ from the outlet of Lake Lucidus over the old glacial moraines to join up with the track to Lake Castalia. As my old hiking buddy Greeny used to say:
“shortcut’s are a bit of a myth, if they were really quicker or better, they’d soon enough just be called ‘the way’..”
