|A favourite and popular shot at Lake St Clair at the
southern end of the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park. This is
Lake St Clair of course, and the imposing and readily recognisable Mount
Ida to the East. The ferry leaves from The Chalet behind us and travels
the length of the lake around the point in the middle of the picture
before arriving at the southernmost end of the Overland Track. You can
read about the overland track in the online book by E T Emmett, called
Tasmania by road and Track and you can find it here.
Try chapter 7 or so for an account of the scaling of Mount Ida and the
walk from Cradle Mountain.
