After a challenging time at work, I took some time off and spent two nights camping in Mt. Field. In this time, I revisited parts of the Lady Barron Falls Circuit (as much as was open at the time), completed the Tarn Shelf circuit (including Lake Dobson), and summited Mt. Field East (including Lake Nicholls), returning via Windy Moor.
Not only was it highly therapeutic, and a big contributor to getting me in the right headspace for my return to work, it was also just an indescribably peaceful few days. Mt. Field is a wonderful place to be, even on your own. The sights on the Tarn Shelf Circuit are jaw-droppingly beautiful and some of my most cherished hiking memories so far. The day I climbed Mt. Field east was cloudy and overcast, thus rendering any views from the summit fairly moot, but it’s still an impressive hike and Lake Nicholls was certainly as scenic as one could hope for.
