Wednesday 14th August

Woke to the car white with frost, we are wanting to go for the forest walk so will catch the bus and walk from there. Went to Ronny creek and the weather has turned real bad so caught the bus back to info center, back to the cabin and had lunch. We then went back again and did the Pencil Pine Falls walk and then headed to the Kynvet Falls. Was getting colder and wetter so headed back to bus stop again, clouds are so low now cant see much at all. Called into the Waldheim Chalet, there is a lot of history to this place and the couple who had the vision,.

Had a real quiet day yesterday, but left early this morning and headed to Cradle Mountain, staying in a cabin for 3 nights. The drive is beautiful and the weather is looking good, clear skies and snow on the tops that we could see. Got set up in the cabin then took off up to Dove Lake and we were lucky there is a bit of snow on Cradle.
