Plateau (MI88)

Up on the plateau on Macquarie Island. If memory serves, this is inland from Sandy Bay looking south towards the Brothers' Track.

 

While the photo makes things look fairly dry, the island's ability to retain water is amazing. Much of the flat ground is a kind of marsh and water wells up around your feet while you're walking over it.
