Hartz Peak revisited
Today was the day. Finally, I climbed Hartz Peak in absolutely perfect weather. Last month I went there with some walking group friends and a cloud sat firmly on top of the mountain, so we stopped at the saddle and enjoyed the view from there. I've been to the top before, but never seen more than glimpses of the vast mountain ranges to the west through swirling clouds. But today, we woke to a clear blue sky and sunshine and you can see for yourself just how incredible the view is. I'm glad we went early. We were first entry in the walker registration book for the day and first to reach the top. By the time we returned to the car park, it was full.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
