Cradle Mountain, Tas, Aus ...
The views on the road down to Cradle Mountain in the Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania were breathtaking.
Being windy, and all up hill and down dale, there was no use for cruise control on our automatic car!
On arrival we decided on taking on one of the more difficult walks up to Crater Peak, over steep terrain exposed to the elements. They weren't wrong, we just about experienced four seasons in one day with gusty winds, blazing sunshine and light showers!
A bright buttercup-like flower.
A pretty pink alpine.
For an artistic slant on this post I took this photo on an angle! I quite like it.
A paper-like white flower.
A creamy-white alpine.
On our descent we witnessed a man carrying a huge rucksack on his back lose his balance, resulting in him toppling backwards consequenting in a badly gashed arm, and I'd imagine several bruises to boot and a very hurt pride.
We both breathed a sigh of relief at not having to use first aid, or attempt to summons the mountain rescue!
