Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Champagne Falls and Bridal Veil Falls

After completing my circuit of Dove Lake, I started heading back towards Launceston, but with a plan to take a detour to find a couple of waterfalls I’d heard about. A 4WD track departs from Lemonthyme Lodge, tucked away in the Moina bush, and heads up a ridge for a kilometre or so before dropping steeply into Bull Creek. The recent rain meant that there was a good flow over Champagne Falls, breaking up and recombining as it tumbled over the drop.

From Champagne Falls the walking track meanders along first one side and then the other of the creek, through lovely rainforest.

It arrives at Bridal Veil Falls, which is about 750m upstream from Champagne Falls. This is taller and more vertical, but has some interesting features as well.

You can actually walk halfway up one side and get partway behind it and look out through the mist (and, yes, the bridge uses the large boulder as a structural support).

As I came back down I noticed a Tasmanian land snail (?).

Both waterfalls, and the area in general, were lovely … and the added bonus was that I had the entire place to myself. (The only down side was that I didn’t take my serious camera.)
