Day 8 - January 22

With a a lot of bushfire smoke around - we decided to return as fast as possible back to Pass Creek. We set off from Hanging Lake before 7 am. The day was very windy (westerly winds - so the fire was blowing towards us) and the temperature in Hobart that day was 39° C.

We had a 4 hour lunch break at Pass Creek - sheltering in the shade from the heat. This photo was taken just as we left to walk to Craycroft Crossing about 5pm.
