Its was cold and with a late start time of ten thirty Friday evening the river route lost. Walking to Wiaopehu with what looked like potential rain later. Spotted some nice mushrooms on a dead stump.
Walking to Te Matawai today and probably nothing more than gathering firewood as Im wearing light shoes. Didnt expect snow, the view from the hut in the morning.

Left Te Matawai after lunch heading down to South Ohau to check the water temperature. Got to South Ohau and its still a bit chill and the water temperature is very chill. Had a cuppa in the hut and then decided that the escape route was a better choice than the very cold feet route.
