Hiking up to Pen-y-ghent some of the path is covered in wooden decking. They are used to get you over swampy bit, but mainly to protect the fauna from damage from all the hikers. This send a flashback to our time in Tasmania and our brilliant hikes there.
The Painted Cliffs in Tasmania on the little island called Maria Island, and if you can time it right you can get there at sunset and low tide you are in for a treat.
We dodge the heavy rain showers while visiting The Bay of Fires in Tasmania, even when the sun wasn’t out we still got to see the strongly coloured rocks.
Found this note while walking on a beach in Tasmania, it looked like it had been there for a while, the Samaritan was also quite honest 🙂
Russell Falls in Mt Field National Park in Tasmania, a rather nice little walk in the bush up to the falls. Just above the water fall was one of the Tasmanian forest fires, they were planning to close the park the very next day because the fires were getting too close.
We arrived into Tasmania amidst of one of the worst bush fires in living memory. You hear and read about it but you really don’t know how bad it is until you see it. The total randomness of the fire – one house, tree or car gone to the ground and right next to it there is a house, tree or car totally unscathed bar a bit of ash.
Our hearts and thoughts goes out to the families who suffered, please donate to the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fond who are working hard to help.
