Mt Forestier walk
Yesterday was summer in Tasmania, following winter last week. We went on a walk with 15 or so people from the Clarence walking group that we've recently joined, up Mt Forestier which is just outside Dunalley on the Tasman Highway, heading towards Port Arthur. At least, that's where we were heading last time we drove that way. It was great to be outdoors in the sun and fresh air, especially as I was still trying to shake a nasty cold. The views were beautiful, but seriously, this can hardly rate as a 'mountain' at only 319m. We live higher up a hill than that, at 450m.That said, we did climb Mt Forestier from sea level, so it was certainly good exercise.
