The photograph is of Barn Bluff, Tasmania’s 5th highest peak (1,559 metres elevation). The photo was taken in late spring after climbing the path up and away from the Scott Kilvert hut by Lake Rodway. The path eventually crests the cirque around Waterfall valley. From here you can connect with the Overland Track, one of Tasmania‚Äôs iconic multi-day hikes…..
