Today we went on a short hike on the Meehan Range, the row of hills opposite Hobart looking north across the Derwent. They can also be seen alongside the plane when landing at Hobart airport. We climbed to the top of Flagstaff Hill for lunch and returned to same way. The walk is mostly on fire trails, perhaps not the most interesting walk but the views are lovely from the top - out to Pitt Water on one side and to Mount Wellington and surrounding peaks on the other. It was still very frosty at the bottom of the hill when we started out around 10am. The wattle was starting to bloom but its leaves and flowers were dusted in white. Puddles were frozen over. However, we all warmed up quickly on the uphill climb.
