Weekly Travel Theme: Edge #2 8-30-14

Here is another entry for the weekly travel theme “edge”. These photos are from Cradle Mountain National Park in Tasmania.In both photos is a view of Dove Lake, the first being from Marion’s lookout and the second  from the trail leading up to 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 and the second photo is looking back over the edge of the rocks.
