The car is now rented for 9 days! Yay!
First stop Lanceston. It is a small little town with cute old buildings. Not much going on as we arrived on Saturday after 3pm.
Sun was starting to set just before we arrived atvour campground.
My tent is back and kicking! We slept 3 in a two man tent :p
And the awesome Suzuki Swift!
Next morning the fun begins.
Off we go to Craddle Mt and our trek!
Bought the mandatory national park pass. You either buy one 24h pass, basically for one park, or one for 2 months.
The weather was not sunny hot hot which wasn’t a bad thing in the end. As we didn’t have to sweat while climbing up and down the mountains.
Our little group
At the very bottom
Somewhere in the middle, about 700m above sea level
Almost at the top
When we finally reached the highest points at our track, not the top of the mountain, we were in all the clouds. Every now and then we could see the top just next to us as the clouds moved.
As we were leaving the national park with the bus we saw a young wombat, in the wild! Awesome and sooo cute! My first wombat! (zoos and animals captured hwreband there don’t count).
Tonight we slept in the camp kitchen as we didn’t have a second layer for the tent and the risk of rain was simply there.
This is a photo from Cradle Mt and Dove Lake on a sunny day. See the top? Beautiful!
And from the highest point looking down to the two lakes, the lake to the left is the one higher up
Ciao for now!
