Dart Track

Our excursion up from Glenorchy ended at the Rees-Dart Track, where we did about a 30 minute hike through the woods.

We hiked along the Dart River through some of the most pristine and untouched forests in the world.

Both the forest and the mountains made the hike very scenic.

We caught a few glimpses of the jet boats coming and going up the river.

In this area, the Dar River is very shallow and there are many sandbars.

There were some incredibly steep cliffs that hung above our head.

Leaving the woods, we hiked into an open valley with breath taking view 360 degrees.

Through the valley there were mountains in the distance.

Quite a few of them still had snow or glaciers on them.

The sun was out, the sky was blue, the weather was perfect & the hike was memorable.

We arrived down by the water's edge & traded off with the group who did the tour boat->hike->4WD ride. I was glad we had our order & it was a wee bit warmer once we got on the boat & the sun was up higher.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Summer school has stared & I am back to volunteering.
