Butchers Creek

Solo tramp to South Ohau hut for an explore of Butchers Creek.

Typical late evening start from Poads Road and a wet walk in the dark up the river to South Ohau. Was a bit of a slow walk. Always enjoy getting there and cranking up a fire after the cold walk and sipping some whisky.

Butchers creek explore day. Always wanted to head up here and check out the tributaries that feed Butchers. Got to less than 100 meters from Dora Ridge track, just a bit of a bush bash to get there.

Out of bed when I woke and did a hut tidy and firewood collection exercise. Lunched in the sun and then left the hut heading out down the river.
