Day 2 - Wild Dog Creek camp to Dixons Kingdom Campsite,
            Side trip to Mt Jerusalem


We enjoyed a leisurely start to the day, a mist had descending on the area creating a beautiful view.  We moved on around 10:30 am, arriving at our next camp, Dixon's Kingdom at 12:30pm.  After looking around the Dixon's Kingdom Hut we set up camp, had lunch and went for a swim in a Tarn on the way to Mt Jerusalem.  We then continued the walk up to Mt Jerusalem which took about and hour (walking slowly with a 5yo).  Back to camp for dinner and reading a book with the kids.
