Richmond Alpine Track

... t feel threatened by the strangers you have to share it with. 4/1/14 Peter and Greg are taking a day off from their hunting and are relaxing at the hut playing dice. We chat as we cook breakfast and pack our bags. They are very familiar with the area and tell us about the terrain we are entering. As Kyle and I embark on today's journey, a heavy fog lingers in the air smothering our views of the valley. We immediately enter a forest that reminds me of hiking in ...

Time flew and it was sunset time before we even knew it. We drove back to Cape Farewell and climbed the ...
