Not much cloud up the Rainbow compared to Lake Rotoiti, a bit of a warm day. We parked at Lees Creek car park and when we where getting ready another group of trampers arrived, they too heading for Lees Creek. As we where hoping to use the small four bunk hut there arrival hastened our departure.
Woken up in the early hours of the morning by a massive thump, thought the hut was falling down. Nope just Jedsada falling out of one of the top bunks onto the floor and he had no injury, so back to sleep. Time to leave this valley, I shall be back with more days.
The big rock that the swing bridge over the Wairau goes to is an interesting start or finish to the Lees Creek valley.
