March 2010 - Mt Field East

Di, Kat, Philip and Bob set out to Mt Field on a beautiful summer's day.  Unfortunately Lyn had the flu and couldn't come that day.

We parked up the Lake Dobson Road at the marked carpark, and walked to Seager's Lookout, a rocky outcrop looking back across to the east.

 There were a lot of rocks!  Perhaps someone else had been there before us.

Then on across the mountain scree, climbing up past Lake Fenton.

The view from the top of Mt Field East, where we stopped for our lunch, was fantastic.  Great views across to the west

Then we scrambled back down, taking a looping circuit down the cooler side of the mountain.  The clean,  clear and cool waters of little Lake Rayner were very welcome.

We worked back down and across the hillside to the mountain road, and the tired ones rested while Philip walked up the road to collect the car - thanks Philip!
A beer or two at the National Park pub was then in order, we thought..
