The story behind the image

His Landscape

I spoke briefly of Major Mitchell, Surveyor, yesterday and I have previously spoken of my efforts to reach to summit of Mount William. My ascent was with the aid of a formulated track, can you imagine being the first, forging new ground (for Europeans I mean, I do not forget the native title) like on Major Mitchell's expeditions; the ascent might have looked something more like this. Mount William, discovered on his third expedition, this time a 1700Km round circuit discovery of Victoria.
