18 May Harris Dam to Yourdamung 13.5k
19 May Yourdamung to Possum Springs 18.7k

This was a great 8 day stretch. Met several other 'end to enders' all travelling southwards, and shared the last three huts with Colin who came onto the track at the Harvey Quindanning Rd and walked through to Dwellingup. He'd be back in Perth by now! There was only one day that was pretty hilly, and that was a real B. The ups went on forever and were very steep. The rest of the 8 days was over good tracks. Margaret's feet are now beginning to behave themselves, but the nights are beginning to get really cold. We are wearing most of our clothes to bed .
We have been really lucky with the weather as well. It rained like crazy all night when we were in the Swamp Oak hut, but we only had to walk in the rain for about one hour yesterday.
Ah well, onwards & upwards tomorrow.
Several people mentioned before we started that they might like to walk a bit with us, so our schedule is as follows :
We leave Dwellingup tomorrow morning, and will be at Gringer Creek hut (at North Bannister) on Sunday 28 May.
We will be at the Mt Cook hut on 30th May (Dad's birthday) so will be at Sullivan's Rock the next morning early. Then we cross Brookton Hwy on Tue 1 June, and will be at the Mt Dale hut that night. We are staying at the Mundaring Weir pub on Sunday 4 June, and walking out the next day. We are going to have a leisurely lunch at the Calamunda Camel Farm in Paul's Valley Rd, and will get to the Kalamunda Pub about 3.30 in the afternoon .... see you there!
We will probably be within mobile phone range a bit from now on so will be able to post a few more photos.
