I couldn't wait to get back to Hobart. I'd booked my own room at the hostel there—the one I was staying at was as ordinary as the others we'd been to but had free wifi. And I'd booked an en suite, so I wouldn't have to traipse around the halls in my pajamas.
Plus, I really needed to do laundry.
Our driver let us off at something called the Tall Trees Walk.
"Walk down and I'll meet you at Russell Falls."
Obligingly, we all started hiking into the rainforest.
And were glad we did. This forest turned out to be stunning, moss-covered, and grand.
Today's long drive was forgotten as we wandered through the trees.
