This morning we woke before dawn to the rumblings of a truck idling nearby, a contrast to waking up in the forest yesterday. We had spent the night in Manjimup at the Caravan Park. It was much colder overnight and this morning the tent was covered in moisture and steam rising from the hit of …Read more »
