I hadn’t planned to come to Cradle Mountain, but when I got up this morning, I had an urge. So, that’s where I went, right after a brief stroll amongst the pebbles on the beach at Mersey Bluff in Devonport.
Last time I was at Cradle Mountain was in 2003, when Kylie and I walked the Overland Track. This is the Ronny’s Creek Boardwalk, one of the start options for the track, and the one that we took in 2003. Although today I was only going as far as Crater Lake, as soon as I stepped out, I had a hankering to do the whole walk again. One day.
Heading up the mountain to Crater Falls, I soon realised that I’m going to have to get a hell of a lot fitter before I do it though.
The water in Crater Lake is ridiculously clear.
