Summit: Mt Boboyan
Date Completed: 22 September 2013
Accompanied by: HW
Notes: I haven’t spent alot of time on the southern end of Namadgi NP (behind Tharwa) other than fishing on the Gudgenby River with Dad and one ill fated attempt at the Fitz’s course whilst training for ‘around the bay’ back in 2011, so it was time to take the BSP out that way to see what it had to offer,
HW and I rose early on Sunday, gave Chamonix a cuddle and hit the road for about 1h30m past Tharwa and along Boboyan Rd (dirt). We arrived at the Yerrabi Track/Boboyan Trig trail head blessed with blue skies and minimal wind.
It was an easy climb up along some great single track and amongst some pretty dense mountain gum forest.
It wasn’t long before we reached the summit and were greeted by fantastic 360 degree views and completely still weather. We tucked into our drinks and snacks, took some creative photo’s at the trig site and relaxed for a while to take it all in.
The vibe was great at the summit of Mt Boboyan so i seized the opportunity to bend my knee and putta-putta ring on it, telling Hayley she is the most important thing in the world to me and asking for her hand in marriage. She was so excited – and agreed to my proposal – and we spent a while longer at the summit soaking up the special moment together.
It’s something i’ve wanted to do for a while now, we’ve talked about it alot. It feels great to be engaged and entering a very special and exciting time together.
As they say: ‘no day but today!’
