Lake St Claire is a much visited place for a variety of reasons. One being the starting point for the Overland Track to Cradle Mountain, taking about 5-6 days trekking though the wilderness of Tasmania.
I was not equipped with tent or appropriate clothing for this apparently amazing journey. Gives me another reason to re visit Tasmania!
Instead I took the day walk to Mt Rufus and Shadow Lake. I didn’t see another person until I reached Shadow Lake. How many times can I say that Tasmanian Parks are absolutely glorious and the government has done a brilliant job ensuring the tracks are very well kept!!!
At Shadow Lake, I found a man fishing in his solitude.
I couldn’t help myself with taking so many images of the different barks on tree trunks!
