So.........................sorry for the delay

Day 2 Strahan to Hobart

Things started off a little wet and still overcast

Expecting the worst we got some wets for my wife at a well over priced rate but the reduction of complaints from the back seat was worth it and its off to Queenstown after breakfast in town.

The view as you come into Queenstown

The view of Queenstown without trees, all cutdown for the mines which produce Gold and copper among other minerals. The high sulfur content from smelting prevents trees to regenerate easily and gives the town a moonscape its famous for.

The road on the way out. The start to the alledged 99 hairpins...................sounds about right

The gang posing.............

Team meeting.............who wants to go FAST??????????
That would be ME!

Further along the road it opens out to some large sweepers near Lake Burbury

Bridge over Lake Burbury

Stopped off at Nelson Falls for a walk and picture opportunities.

We stopped at the carpark for the Frenchmans Cap walk to try the swing bridge over the Franklin River.

Franklin River
Had to have a "team meeting "with the pillion as "set your own pace" appears to mean two TOTALLY different things for each of us.
With the corner speed duly adjusted, we continued.

Stopped for lunch at Derwent Bridge and then took the only dirt rd for the trip to the bottom end of Lake St Clair

Still had a few Klm's to Hobart so we kept going

Twisties near Tarraleah

Some of the locals..............Tarraleah

Next 150 k's we pushed into Hobart and arrived at about 7.30pm

End of day 2

Day 3 later tonite.........I promise
