Shimmering, shattering schist is sandstone pressure-cooked undersea 200 million years ago and have up some 185 million years later by the collision of two crustal plates. I am in awe. I feel wonderfully small walking amongst these giant cliffs and crags as I hike to a snow-fed, glacier-scoured, rain-filled alpine cirque lake that sits just below The Remarkables.

There were pockets of sunshine on the assent that turned to snow and sleet in the end. One of the bridges was made of slabs of schist, and the aqua water looks even more amazing than a camera can depict.
