I had heard much legend of Tassie bushwalking/hiking/tramping (the "sodden Loddon" Plain on the way to Frenchman’s Cap for example) – but no matter how much you hear about days and days of knee deep mud, it doesn’t quite "sink in" until you are actually in it. It is what gaiters were invented for! (and my old Lowe Alpine gaiters have finally bitten the dust – or the mud)
We just spent the last four days walking/wading into, and then through, part of the Western Arthurs Range. Stunning scenery, but boy do you earn it slogging through endless plains of button grass swamp and bog to get there! A truly beautiful place though. Some day, we will do the whole range – a two week extravaganza! Enjoy the pics – see right.
