Location: On top of the world, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia
At the beginning of this 7 hour hike (looked up later it was 13km we walked) I was seriously doubting why I had decided to do this walk with some other wonderful bubblers (aka the Wednesday Warriors as Mieke has labelled us, click here to see her image of us all).
It was blowing a gale (frosty winds too), raining (it was at one stage nice and misty, that changed a second later).
The walk took us from Ronny Creek car park, up via the Horse Track to Crater Peak (which is supposed to look over Crater Lake, do you think we saw that haha, the wind was that strong it had us all hiding behind the peak trying to get out of it). From Crater Peak the walk took us to the Overland Track (near Kitchen Hut) which is when the rotten weather started to clear (except the wind).
It was then that I was glad that I did the walk. To see this beautiful landscape from this angle was spectacular (just hope the photos I post do it justice).
Anyhoo via the Overland Track we headed to Marions Peak and then down through to Crater Lake, Crater Falls then back to the car…
I can not tell you how good that hot shower (and red wine) was at the end of the day :o)
