    Looks like a chopper shot but I don't remember taking it from a chopper.

    First guess, a little west of Conways Gap on the Wadbilliga Road on the hill in the big patch of scrub.

    Second guess, top of Razorback Trail

    Third guess, east from Big Badja - but I don't think the zoom on my humble little pocket camera is that good.

    As it turns out, I was planning on a cruise on the GS down that way today so I'll have a better idea later.

    trail is best ive ever seen historically atm..

    dozer thru etc .. no treefalls to negotiate , tho lapse of concentration will c u meet your maker on decent / accent to the "gap"

    veiws / access to the tuross proper , once in a lifetime atm post pyro...

    lacing rim on 625 today , back down for a day loop thru the razorback next week .

    Also closed are the bridge to Bodalla at Nerrigundah, the Dry Creek crossing to the Araluen Road, and the northern end of Araluen Road to Majors Creek.

    The good news is that the mystery is solved; the bad news is that it's not Wadbilliga Mountain.
    This is what it looked like today from Big Badja trig

    I'm not positive but I think it is called Euranbene Mountain. The Shoalhaven starts on its north-east slope.
    Snow on the Main Range still visible from Badja

    The track to Big Badja is clear now
