The very majestic Cradle Mountain.
G'day. Continuing on with our trip to Tasmania, this is my very favourite area in this lovely country. The beautiful Cradle Mountain with the boat shed and Dove Lake in the foreground.
This would have to be one of the most photographed sights in Tasmania and no trip to Tassie is complete for me without a visit to this glorious place. It is in the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park and tourists flock here to see the sights of this magical area.
There are numerous walking tracks around the lake, some can take more than a few hours to explore, others can take much longer and on the day we visited there were quite a few walking parties setting out on their travels. I have always wanted to do one of these walks, but have never managed to make it happen. It was a very cold day on this visit and we were grateful to be back in the car, so a walk was out of the question, but maybe next time.I have always loved this spot in the winter, when the mountain is capped in snow, it never fails to stir something in me.Of course, there was no snow at this time of the year, but with the low clouds swirling around the top of the peak it was still a lovely sight and I never tire of visiting it.Take care.
