Travel Photo of the Day 6-19-2011

Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania

This is a view of Dove Lake from the Face Track along Cradle Mountain. I started my hike at the far end of Dove Lake. When I reached the south end of the lake there was a small trail heading up to the Face Track. The sign at the base said it was steep and difficult but it didn’t look so bad, at the beginning. It started off with steps, then turned into a steep path but the tree roots were almost like steps. About two-thirds of the way up it turned into rock and they had installed metal post and heavy chains to use as a handrail for the rock climbing portion. They were right it was steep and difficult. But this view was the reward.
