Day hike across the face of Cradle Mountain
We experienced a walk that took us beneath huge slabs of Dolerite towering into the sky, weaving around lakes that filled the creators and the base of the mountain and with the trail surrounded by native flora, some of which is only found in Tasmania.
Cradle Mountain is impressive. It was formed hundreds of millions of years ago by magma cooling beneath the Earth’s surface. Among the end of an ice age, glaciers tore away the Earth’s crust weaker rock, leaving these giants exposed.
