Having walked the road route from Twizel in the hot sun, and rummaging around in bushes a fair bit testing random routes out, we decided to call it a night and camp by the water. It’s always tough going after a couple of rest days, so by now we were feeling well off the ball. Beautiful mist here in the morning – taken by Cookie of course – I’d never be up in time ;)
We’d struggled enough today, when we found a spot of flat grass just before Moari Swamp that only had a light sprinkling of rabbit shit, we called it a day and pitched our tent. Beautiful spot, alongside the mountain across the lake – Ben Ohau.
