Join me on a bush walk

Our bush walks this week have been wonderful. Too good to not share.

So, come with me….



Boardwalks through the buttongrass



Heading to the hills




Getting higher, a few little waterfalls





The fagus is beginning to turn




Elevated view looking back to where we started




Heading to the Crater Lake



Crater Lake



Path onwards



A bit straggly here



Higher it looks darker



Over the crest and looking down to Lake Lilla and Dove Lake



Most of us just lunching here, but others heading on a 7 day trek…



Passing Wombat Pool



Dove Lake



The lake


Then around this lake



Glacier Rock on the left, people on it



Walkers on the rock, nice viewpoint



The view from the rock



Boardwalk



Boardwalk



On other side of lake now



Forest part



More forest



Cool and shady



The boat shed



The boat shed



Echidna busy searching for ants




Wombats




Little falls




More walks




More walks


hope you enjoyed it…

Those lakes have me wishing I could jump in.

That looks like a lot of elevation.

Thank you Adie.

Ade, my fave shot was your first Dove Lake. And what a great walk to have at your fingertips.
Solvitur Ambulande.
I am done. The wombat

Fabulous photos Ade, thanks for posting! I recognize the location and lucky you to have Cradle Mountain with wombats nearby.

(zebec, I don't mind admitting I had to look up Solvitur Ambulande. Well said.)

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing, Adelaidean. Sometimes it's easy to forget what's here in our rush to get overseas. A friend and I had a wonderful long weekend at Phillip Island with brilliant coastal hiking, a mere two hours from home.

Thank you for sharing. Brings back great memories of our own time at Cradle Mountain a few years ago. The wombats are adorable. Hoping to return to Australia soon.

This was lovely -- thank you!

In about a month we'll be flying to Australia, and your photos help feed our excitement!

Cheers,
