Waiopehu, Te Matawia, and South Ohau

Walked into Waiopehu Hut on my own, did not see any other people.

Saturday 19/09/2009
Left car at Poads Road and went up Waiopehu Track to Waiopehu hut.
There is a nice open bit where there are a couple of mountain type cabbage tree things.

The hut is noticeable on the way there but its styled and painted well for a bit of camouflage.
Lots of different clouds came and went during the afternoon.
Sunday 20/09/09
Out of bed to a clear sunny day. Headed off to Te Matawai hut.
Went for a walk up onto the main range for an hour or so. Just on three left Te Matawai hut and went down to South Ohau via Yeates track and then out took the river out from South Ohau hut and then the track above the gorge back to Poads Road.
