East Cradle

13-16 April 2010 It was a little windy and cloudy so we elected to walk in via Lake Hanson.  During the night the wind got up quite strongly and buffeted the tent considerably, so it was fortunate that we picked the sheltered side of the pines and bushes to camp. It was cloudy next morning but we were far enough away from Cradle and low enough to get the breaking cloud and eventually sunshine.  Cradle remained under cloud for much of the day however.  We ventured out as to the far eastern peak on the plateau and in the afternoon ascended a peak closer to Cradle.  All quite pleasant meandering about in very enjoyable weather.  On the final morning it was misty and the cloud ceiling did not lift during the walk back to Dove Lake.
