Where: Into the first hut on the St James Walkway - Magdalen Hut.
What: our third tramp as a full family. Jakob 7 (nearly 8 as he tells everyone), Eli 5, Karen 43, Aaron 34
Why: because we can and because it has no big hills, which means my heart will stand up to it.
How: By car to Hanmer Springs on Friday night. Stayed the night at the Hanmer Springs Forest Camp in a lovely cabin with a bunk bed and a queen. Cheap at $58 for the whole family. Then on by car where we parked in the Boyle River Township. A lot of people arrange to park in the Boyle river outdoor education centre.Then on foot to the hut (about 8km).
|Across the Bridge|
|About a third of the tramp done|
|Through the bush|
|Over streams and gullies|
|Have some tucker|
|Over the grassy plain|
|Arrive at the hut|
|Cool off (it was a hot day)|
|Chill out and eat more food|
|Sleep get up and do it all again - but in reverse|
|Arriving back at the car. Not as fresh, tired legs but happy.|
