Cradle Mountain Huts Walk    January 2014

"So, a Yankee, a Canuck, a Swiss and nine Aussies walk into the wilderness".

 

Sounds like the start of a bad joke! Instead, it was the beginning of an adventure I'm sure we'll always treasure.

With the sun shining, and the sunscreen glowing we set out on a 6 day hike that saw some tackle mountain peaks, others tackle lakes and waterfalls and everyone tackling homemade bread each morning!

A true highlight for me was the night we ate dinner under the watchful eye of Mt. Oakleigh...a true team effort and a fine example of the generous, adventurous spirit a journey like the overland track can invoke in all of us.

I could go on and on with countless tales and phrases coined by our group along the track, but instead let me end with this quote from John Muir...“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...”

Go find out for yourself - I promise you won't regret it.
