A knee testing trip to Kiwi Saddle Hut with Anthony and a possible wander up the top depending on the wx.
Left Motueka and drove to Tapawera then thru Tadmor and finally to Rolling Junction towards the end of Wangapeka River Road. We parked here and headed up the Wangapeka track.
Shitty weather, sleet, rain, some wind so we walked back. Kiwi Sadlle hut is a typical little six bunker.
Hut was clean, fire is open and can get a bit smokey if the wood is not pushed back. Whisky was Ardbeg 10yo, really nice with a smokey fire. No wee books of imaginary friends to send back.
