Going up seems to involve a lot if downwards stretches for some reason. Whoever built these mountains should have thought through a smoother more efficient gradient in my view! Those peaks in the background are where we’re headed. Was trying not to feel too intimidated by the size and pointy-ness of them. They’re feeling pretty big and I’m feeling pretty small!
Gorgeous weather we’re having today, starting to wonder what all the fuss is about with the weather here? Although one of our companions at the hut last night reckoned on average the Tararua only get 20 days of clear skies a year! Pretty lucky then :)
