I’ve just completed my second trip on the Overland Track in Tassie with the first one being 20 years ago as a teenager. The weather last time was bad, didn’t see Cradle Mountain as I walked past, nor Tassie’s highest peak Mt Ossa. The weather this time was worse with constant sleet and then snow and didn’t see either mountain again, however the sky cleared one morning for 10 minutes before snowing again. Whilst the track is a lot easier than 20 years ago with some boardwalks it is still very much a challenge and the mountain atmosphere is a powerful force not too be underestimated, even in summer. Didn’t get many images but after fresh snow this place is just pure magic.
