Eventually I have walked 12-13 km and nearly reached the source of the Goose River – it has become somewhat narrow in any case, and I can now easily cross it with dry shoes by hopping from rock to rock. I decide to go to the top of the nearest mountain, from where I imagine I can get a good view of the “heath” to the west.
I reach the summit of the mountain, which, according to my watch, is 450 metres high. There is indeed a beautiful view, and the “mountain” itself consists of the wildest sandstone formations, which are really beautiful. Sandstone is a rock consisting of deposited grains of sand that, millions of years ago, were cemented together into solid rock.
In reality, I have only explored a fraction of this huge Jameson Land, but I must return to the tent. So, after a while, I turn home towards the tent, which I reach just before midnight. Here awaits a nice cold Coca-Cola and food on the Trangia (gas cooking set).
