Lake Sylvestor Kahurangi

A Kahurangi National Park tramp with Tariga.

Sunday 08/11/09
Left Nelson at about ten and drove over the Takaka hill and then up the Cobb Dam road to the top of the hill.
We stopped for a bit as the windy road was not to good for Tariga. After recovery time we drove on down and crossed the lake at the penstocks.
Drove just a few hundred meters on to the start of the walk to Sylvestor lake. We left the car park after one and did meet a few people walking out.

This little bird was hard to get a photo of as it kept moving.
The forest trees, kept me thinking of The Cure and the song A Forest.
And the out of the bush trees with the mushroom shape calling for the upright people.
No one else at the hut so had a bit of a snack and then walked to the Lake.

Was cold enough to light the fire.

Monday 09/11/09
Had a couple of weka's wandering around the hut.
We geared up and went for a walk up Iron Hill after lunch.
Back at the hut by five, and had food and packed up and left for the car at six.
