    Hi everyone, here's a selection from a hike myself and some friends did last summer (it's taken a while to get around to posting this one).

    The 'Southern Ranges' are a series of interconnected peaks (not a true range) that run parallel to the south coast of Tasmania; the southern most point of the Australian continent. The walk was about 75km and took 6 days all up (distance and difficulty have a different relationship in Tassie than in a lot of other places...).

    These shots are all from day 1, read the report here: http://peopleandotherstrangecreatur...-ranges-pt-i-mystery-creek-precipitous-bluff/

    I'll continue posting from the rest of the trip as I get the write up together :smile:
