The Overland Diaries pt. II

The Tasmanian highlands can be an unpredictable place, especially when it comes to the weather… On my most recent trip we had two days of heavy snow, followed by three days of perfect, cloudless sunshine, with 20deg temperatures for our ascents of Mt Ossa and Mt Oakleigh (first group to do both this season), and then heavy rain and wind for our walkout on Day 6…

At least it’s always interesting!
