Tasmania - Hartz Mountain

P100046220100208 Tasmania - Hartz Mountain

The last big hiking day is through the Hartz Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Area about an hour's drive south of Hobart. I've been driver every day and call it quits at Lake Esperance while the others climb to Hartz Peak.

I meandered slowly back down the path, inspecting the plant life around the path. Back at the park's day shelter, I settle back into Matthew Kneale's English Passengers. The book is a merciful distraction from the mayflies that madly taunt me, disregarding my tropical strength insect repellent. I defend myself with a handled breadboard from our picnic box until the others return.
