Cradle Mountain- Again!!

 We had been watching the weather very closely for a few weeks and were waiting for a clear, sunny day so we could head back to Cradle Mountain.  We even did an hour or so of school work on Sunday, so we could take the day off Monday and enjoy this special part of the world again.
 We certainly did get a sunny day!  The weather was just perfect.  Even though I'd taken a hundred photos when I was here a few weeks ago, I still went crazy and took just as many again!!

 We had planned to do the walk around Dove Lake this time as we didn't before.  But when we got down here, we decided we didn't want to walk around the lake, we wanted to climb up again and take in the great views on the hike we did before.

 Yay!! We made it again.  It's a tough walk up, but we sit up here, have lunch and enjoy God's creation for an hour or so.

 This is Ronny Creek where our walk ended.  Such a beautiful countryside.  We are so glad we came back again.  I told the girls I'll come back again with them one day and we'll climb to the top of Cradle Mountain or maybe even do the overland track!!
