Red Knoll Lookout

At the foot of a hill leading to the Red Knoll Lookout we passed a parked hired holiday van and three people casually walking upwards.  As we continued along the good gravel road we noticed skid marks and then before the brow of a hill a few massive slide marks let us realise those people had not been able to drive their van at the appropriate speed to get any further.  Jeanette dropped me at the top of the Red Knoll Lookout and kindly went back and collected the walkers to save them the effort of walking.

Meanwhile I enjoyed the expanse of Lake Pedder and the mountains.   20170930_104205.jpg
