The Sentinels

Along the Gordon River Road heading towards Lake Pedder is a spectacular range called The Sentinels. It’s a quartzite range about five km long and one km high and it would seem the most common reaction of people seeing it for the first time as they drive round the bend is, “Wow!”

That was certainly my reaction. This range took my breath away when I saw it from the road. Over the three days we were in the area we made several photo stops here, and here’s what we saw.

Day one—sunny, beautiful sky
