Gillespie Pass

Frosty camp in Young Basin,
Milky Way glistening brilliantly above.

Elevation quickly gained then lost;
Enchanting scenery from Gillespie Pass.
Relaxing afternoon enjoying Siberia Valley
Beneath Mt Dreadful's towering face.

Lunchtime siesta at Crucible Lake;
Refreshing dip at Kerin Forks.
Evening chats with fellow campers;
Meteors sprinkle the darkening sky.

Hot morning with abundant sandflies,
Relieved by deep river crossings.
Throb and thrill of jetboat
Planing down the braided river.
