[181.6]
[Music] the weather though in complete contrast to the extreme here the day before quickly turns we watch the rain roll through the valley for a few seconds but with this part of the track basically an exposed ribbon along the ridge line we drop to first low for the last loose and slightly sketchy bit

[Music] and she was the final Waypoint on the map 400 KS from home a hundred and fifty that through River Basin and Alpine range we've not another soul in sight more than ever before we have a deep appreciation for being able to get out explore and discover these places for ourselves it's these quiet moments in which we unwind 20:18 was a whirlwind and who knows what the year ahead will bring but it's off to a pretty good start and with that in mind we turn the key certain to one thing as much as we can we will run [Music]
