Cradle Mountain / Overland Track    January 2011

Walk review from Richard, Cradle Mountain / Overland Track Tasmania

Hello Ros,

Thanks for the follow up e mail!

You must get a stack of photos showing similar views, here's something I hope is a bit different.

Stephanie and I had a wonderful time. We were very lucky with the weather. Five out of 6 dry days! The elements threw a bit at us on day 4 though. Here's an interesting snapshot of us having just left the Pelion Gap. The white dots in the photo are actually the hailstones bouncing about.

We were all quite safe under the guidance of John Braid and Lachy Taylor whose combined knowledge was encyclopaedic.

Best wishes

Richard Spencer
