Drove to Kiriwhakapapa road end, a bit later than I wanted to. Headed off in the dark and as my torch was dimming stopped to change batteries and discovered no spares. Blue Range it is now, was heading to Cow Creek.
And the whisky is that one we would never give away as its the worlds tastiest single malt Scotch whisky. Lagavulin 16yo.
Lost in the scrub for a while, looking for the access to the spur down to Cow Creek, gave up bush bashing after smoking lounge discovered.
Cow creek was a full hut via chopper, heading to Blue Range as I decided earlier to not biv.
Not much walking today, hanging out at Blue Range.
The rock has views, the rock is 5 minutes from the hut.
Woke up to gentle rain and left the hut in heavy rain. Wet. A fifty minute wander back to the car and a Tui.
