We made a nice early start for Mt Field National Park on Saturday. The weather just perfect, the journey over the Plenty River uninterrupted by any other traffic, and onto the National Park Centre’s Cafe for a coffee before the 16km drive up the mountain to the gorgeous Lake Dobson and the Wellington Ski Hut, of which we are members. Busy Bee day, painting and general doing to be done and so we pitched in with a few others and got on with it. Brian painted the lake end of the hut while I was general worrier and ladder holder. We walked the gorgeous Pandani trail around the small lake while we waited for others, it is a magical walk not captured well by my photos.
