A day trip with Anthony to bag the three huts easily accessible from the Howard valley road, Booth's hut up Louis Creek and the two Maud huts up the Maud Creek.

Drove a wee way up Monument Road off Howard Valley road, parked oppisite the monument.
Not too far from the road end, just a slight up hill ramble to this old family home looking a bit jaded, last sorted 1995. Needs attention soon.

Interesting old cable excavator from 1950's made by Jaques Australia on the way up Maud Creek.

Aim was to have lunch at Maud Valley hut, however its a bit of mess with high rat occupancy.
