Our first views of the Pieman River

The majority of the climb up Mt Donaldson crosses exposed ground with ankle high vegetation growing beside a stony track that winds around the lower slopes of the mountain. With the openness comes sensational views across thousands of hectares of Tarkine landscape.

The initial thrill is spotting the Pieman River to the south way below the mountain. The higher we went the more glimpses we saw.

This video gives some idea of the sweep of the landscape.

From the top of the mountain only a little of the Pieman River remains visible because lower hills block viewing .
