On paper 70 kilometres doesn’t seem like much, but days of walking takes its toll on the Overland Track.
I get a high from standing on top of a mountain. Consequently, there must also be disappointment when you don’t make it.
When the track is tricky and boggy it takes effort to remember to look up and enjoy the scenery.
On my first day walking Tasmania’s famous Overland Track, nature punched me in the face.
At the end of my second day on the Overland Track I wrote in my notebook: “It’s the littlest moments that make this so amazing.”
