|I think "hut" is Tassie for what ever kind of structure you see here|
Here is a medicine wheel that Matt constructed. I let him borrow my camera when he went out for a walk. I didn't go with because of my recently aching knee. I'm glad I didn't though, because these pictures may never have been taken if I'd gone along with him.

These pictures barely capture it, but the sunrise on this morning was especially beautiful.
Here are a few photos that attempt to show the Zorbatrol in action... and also the necessary draining of the core, with a subsequent hack-sawing at he water-line.
|Tim-Tam delivery... yeehaw!!!|
It was a luxury to discover that these three wonderful people (Scott, Bob, and Cathy) were nice enough to bring some Tim-Tams back with them. So, we had our ritual Tim-Tam break and then packed our gear for the return hike. Before we left the area though, we did return to the hut for some lunch and one last paddle around Lake Rodway. I didn't include any pictures of this... those are just for me. :)
We made it out by about four pm and then found out the key for the van had been misplaced. After some searching and a little bit of stressing, Bob found the key in Matt's pack, and we were off. On the way back I felt unusually good about our progress. I feel like we have truly accomplished something here, with the coring and everything. But, aside from that, I feel like I have been truly blessed in being able to spend this time with the people I have spent it with, and also for being given the chance to exist next to the plants and animals that I have existed next to for the last week or so. This is a special thing for me, and I'm sure will play heavily on my development as an individual as I learn more about myself and the nature of existence.
