It was one of those days! Those days, when you wonder why you do this bushwalking thing. We’d left the Black River in Victoria’s Gippsland early in the morning knowing that some bad weather was heading our way. The forecast was for several days of high winds and over 100mm of rain so we were glad to get across the river. The weather change hit us as we were about halfway up Mt Shillinglaw. The forecast wasn’t wrong.
