Sun, snow and stoke in the heart of the Tassie Wilderness World Heritage Area. Hiking (part of) the Du Cane circuit, heading back out through the Labyrinth after sending up Mount Hyperion, save the total loop for another time! Some of the most intense glacial activity in the continent has carved out the most spectacular mountain peaks and ridge lines, each casting a mean silhouette in the cloud and projecting across the plateau in ultimate style when the sun breaks through.
The Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park – where these photos were taken – is the traditional lands of the Lairmairrener nation. I respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of these lands and waters on which I was able to traverse, learn, and appreciate – and pay respect to the First Nations Peoples and their elders, past, present and future.
