Mt Jerusalem

Walls of Jerusalem National Park

We headed off to The Walls today in the hope of photographing the Richea Scoparia. Starting the day in sub zero temperatures (yes, it is supposed to be summer)  we weren't too surprised that this spectacular plant was not in flower.  The cold start to summer has delayed things.  The day was not lost as we met many visitors along the way from all over Australia and the World!  The dazzling green Cushion Plant against Coral Fern changing it's colour for summer made for many beautiful photo opportunities.

Mt Jerusalem

   
  One of the many tarn passed near the start of the walk to the summit of Mt Jerusalem. The view west from the summit through the "Central Walls". King David's Peak on the left with Lake Salome in the valley. Barn Bluff (left) and Cradle Mountain are in the distance.  
   
  Looking north towards Lake Thor from the summit of Mt Jerusalem. Looking north east towards The Great Western Tiers overlooking "The Lakes" district.
