I just spent three days honouring my father-in-law’s 70th birthday wish to return to his favourite place on earth.

I used to think Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain was spectacular no matter which way you cut it.

But now I see that, due to its extraordinary popularity, it’s cut in twain with a car park.

I certainly can’t complain. I was part of the crowd stomping on and gawking at this erstwhile wilderness.

But as I turned to leave, Joni Mitchell’s song leapt to mind.

I don’t know what the answer is.

Perhaps you do.
