Our final day we drove up Mt. Wellington, the 1300 meter peak above Hobart (you can see it in the background behind the Cascade Brewery). We should have done this on the third day, because there were loads of cool hiking trails and it would have been great to do at least one of them. The views from the top were quite spectacular, and the scenery reminded me a lot of Alaska, because it was above treeline. It also reminded me of Alaska because it was quite cold! I wished I had my hat and gloves!

Our friend Pete was also in Tasmania from Melbourne while we were there, so each night we went out to dinner with him. It was good to catch up, and the dinners we had were fantastic. Tasmania is expensive, but I really enjoyed the food we ate while we were there.
Except for our misguided hiking attempt, we really enjoyed Tasmania. The scenery was very pretty and the lack of people made the experience very relaxing. I would like to go back again, but I don’t know if we’ll be able to before we leave.
