Preparing to hike 800+ kilometers in Spain on the El Camino de Santiago can be fun! We did choose a rainy day, and took a very wet and mushy route. It was a good way to test the gear last sunday in a nearby (20 minutes drive) national park.
OK, so I misspelled the title. It is Narawntapu National Park, previously known as the Asbestos Ranges. Lynda, Rebecca and Walter (me) decided to test our gear a little and walked up Archers Knob and walked back around the marshy lake shore riddled with Wombats (the largest burrowing mammal in the world) and Forester Kangaroos (which happens to be the largest kangaroo in Tasmania and the second largest in the world). Pictured below is a wet Pademelon (we have millions of them around).
At the end we barbecued a Chorizo Paella for lunch with a beetroot/tomato salad, which seemed appropriate since we are heading for Spain in September! Thanks Ree for making us great lunch :)
I will try and post more photos on Facebook. Make sure you like www.facebook.com/coughing4cf
