Westport to Lyell
50 km (31.1 mi)

writing this on the 18th...too cold to type last night....

Didn't roll out of the hostel till about 11am. The ride for most of the day was nice, in a big river gorge. Stopped a few times to eat. Can't belive in Australia I was biking over 100km every day...then again, it was flat there too. Reached this DOC campsite at this old ghost town called Lyell. I decided to just camp there since it would be dark in a couple hours. There was a shelter that I could camp in and not have to set up my tent. It got cold really fast. After dinner I just crawled into my sleeping bag and finished the Dalai Lama autobiography and went to sleep. Woke up at one point during the night cause I heard something below me under the bench. I slammed my foot down and a possum went running out.
