A Weekend Away

I took a trip this past weekend with a friend to lake Youl on the Ben Lomond Plateau. Rough walking in scrub and on scree, but worth the effort, as these pictures attest! We camped overnight near the lake - a pretty cold night is was, too!
This is one of my favourite places......it has that subtle beauty of the Tasmanian Highlands........as Bob used to say of this plateau: "It's like the surface of the moon with flowers!" Well, there aren't many flowers in bloom at the moment, but in summer this place is ablaze with colour.

What a beautiful place Suzie, you are lucky to have it, I wish I had such a remote place to get away to, I'd be on it in a minute! Thank you for sharing the photos. Best, Ani in NC

Thanks Ani. What I love about this place is that it is only accessible by a reasonably hard walk, so it gets hardly any visitors......it is so unspoilt. Places like that are pretty rare on our planet, unfortunately.
