Te Matawai

Carl and I doing an Ohau trip, too much rain so we didn't walk up the river, we took Gables track and headed to Te Matawai.

A rain walking exercise with Carl, got to the hut after mid night and got a fire going and ate food. A few beers and whiskys later and it was almost four in the morning.

Did not do much this day as it was a sleep in type of day. In the end we decided to head down to South Ohau. It was a fast blast down the hill.
