Farther up the valley from the ski resort town of Thredbo the Thredbo river rises near a spot called Dead Horse Pass.
The river flows through thick vegetation with quite a few wildflowers. You can see a macro of a one of the wildflowers in the workshop as well as photo of a local walking track
Those tree skeletons that you can see are snow gums burnt in a massive fire in 2003 (17 years ago!), Snow gums don't regenerate like most eucalypts but by seed released as a result of the fires. They are very slow growing trees due to the cold climate and snow but you can see the new trees growing below the dead ones (clearer in the large version).
