Where is this snow?

By johnboy - 21 July 2013 21

snow

This in from Ben Dover, can anyone help him find the snow?

I took this this morning, looking from Stromlo, across Woden. Does anyone know which hill the snow in the distance is on?

Cheers M’dears.

Looks like the ridge line out behind Googong Dam. The peaks there are just over 1000m so plenty high enough to have snow.

It may be the Tinderry Range. I would say you are looking southeast from Mt Stromlo. The saddle in the foreground looks like part of the Red Hill-Isaacs Range between Mugga Quarry 1 (visible, but shaded) and Mugga Quarry 2 (not visible).

The highest peak in that area is Yanununbeyan (in the N.P. of the same name) which I think is about 1200m.

Yep.. Draw a line in Google Earth to the right of the hospital from Stromlo and you end up in the higher country between Googong Dam and Wanna Wanna Road. Interesting that they look so high from that telephoto angle.

As I said, Yarrow Pic.

The Talleganda Ranges behind Hoskinstown were dusted for most of the day, but they have thick trees on, and that hill’s bare. Might be the line rearing out of Googong maybe.

there is heaps of snow around, but no easy ways to pop out and see some.

Corin forest is covered (see this pic
http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/cold-snap-expected-to-continue-early-in-the-week-20130721-2qcyd.html )

but they are closed, as they cna’t handle the crowds.

there must be some way they could do it. Loads of people just want to pop out somewhere, throw a couple of snowballs and go home, without driving all the way to cooma.

I’d be interested to know where you heard that explanation.

Last year I had a chat to some people from TAMS who had just shut the gate. Their explanation was as soon as there’s a couple of cm of snow over the road, they need to send people home and close it. There was only a handful of people and it was mid-week so definitely not a crowd issue.
