Second chance

I have to go back in tomorrow to try and retrieve a pair of shoes left at the hut.

THIS time I will take the camera!

I hoped to have lots of new pictures of the Tararuas but:

the weather was foul
the wife forgot to pack the camera- having said she would.

So I will paste some pictures from government websites, as I have already paid for them!

The top one is the Mitre Flats hut- about 4 hours up the valley from where we stayed. The track is classic Tararuas tramping (absolute ankle-twisting shit)

The second is Jumbo Hut- an uphill grunt of 2-4 hours depending on your fitness and ability to take pain.

Going back next week

Hopefully without the white stuff!
