Penn Creek

A small walk into Penn Creek hut cause I could not be bothered going Friday night.

Saturday 07/07/2012
Drove to Otaki Forks and then walked into Penn Creek Hut.
Got there just after five as the light faded, and gathered wood. Lite the fire and then had a very interesting smoke filled evening. Not sure if it would have been warmer with no fire and closed windows or fire going with open windows? Very smokey.

Had a wander around to find some more wood.
Left the hut after two and then had a stop at the creek before heading off uphill. Got to the car with fading light, had to use my torch for the last ten minutes. All in all a great wee trip, cleaned up both huts as someone had left rubbish in them.
