It gets pretty hot over the summer months in South Australia. Often our members head elsewhere to cooler climates to continue hiking.
But even when it’s cooler, bushfires can still be a risk. One of our members, Jeremy, found himself hiking towards a large fire front on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania. Here’s a photo he has shared with us when he first noticed the fire as he came out of dense forest.
You can read more about his escape on his Notes from a Trailhead blog.
Don’t forget our Twilight walking program is underway, a two hour walk each Wednesday evening. www.heysentrail.asn.au/walks
Where have you been hiking over recent weeks? Perhaps leave a comment on our Facebook page, where this same post has been made.
Stay safe everyone!
