    Its a long way down

    The walk now is on good tracks, our car is on the right hand side of the photo, somewhere in the green patch, some hours away.

    Pull up a rock for lunch

    When we got closer to the larger of the Emerald Lakes, its a matter of finding a rock and having another bite to eat.
    This area was one of the highlights for me.

    Emerald Lake

    Finally we descend to the larger of the Emerald Lakes, you realise how popular the hike is when you see all the people around the lake, this is the only one with easy access.

    looking back at the south crater

    This is taken from the last climb near the red crater looking back at the South Crater, The height stands out more when the photo is enlarged to show the small specks are people.
