Huon Bush Retreats to Mount Misery, a lovely walk to do in autumn because there is usually a fine collection of colourful fungi on display. But the weather forecast wasn't looking good - 95 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms - so we abandoned the idea. Sure enough we had thunder, heavy rain, fog and then steady rain all morning, so it would indeed have been quite miserable up there. So here are some photos taken a few weeks ago when I checked out the walk with some friends. The track is very well maintained and has interpretive signs along the way, explaining everything except why it is called Mount Misery! I'll have to borrow a Tasmanian place names book and look it up.
