Tell us the story behind your photo:
The photo was taken after a miserable walk out of Billy goat campsite. The night before we arrived at the campsite in the dark and heavy rain. No space for cooking dinner or breakfast the next morning. After walking for seven hours the previous day this tramp was a test of spirit and perseverance for the whole group. The tramp was seriously challenging, but afterwards, we were all happy that we persevered in the atrocious weather and had a well-deserved stop at McDonald's.
