We caught the bus to Scotts Peak Dam and walked out to Junction Creek, then up Moraine A and then continued along to camp at Square Lake. This was a long afternoons walk - but it was worthwhile.

Next morning was fine. Dave Rutherford and myself woke early and climbed up to Mt Sirius for the sunrise - as the following sequence of photos should demonstrate -

After enjoying this spectacular dawn - we went back down to the Lake for breakfast - and then had a nice day walking to High Moor.

The next day we walked to Haven Lake. In the late afternoon I climbed up above the Lake for some photos.

Overnight - we had a big storm - and I broke one of my tent poles - and had to improvise a repair (which lasted OK for the rest of the trip).

That afternoon we enjoyed swimming in Promontory Lake. The next day was wet and we spent the day inside the tents. The next day - Val and Dave R continued on to Pass Creek. Jenny was only doing the Western Arthurs and I was going to walk out with her to the bottom of Moraine K - but she met another party at Lake Vesta to walk out with, so I continued down Moraine K, then walked quickly to Craycroft Crossing and Pass Ck to join the others for the Eastern Arthurs.
