Tutuwai Hut

Another late night stormy wander after work on a Friday. Picked up Martin on the way and it was an easy drive to the car park before Kiwi Ranch, We wandered off and we got there after midnight and not wet. Hmmm the forecast weather was a bit late.

Lots of deer about in our travels including two face to face meetings, on the flats before Tutuwai hut. Bed time was sometime before 0400 Saturday morning.

A lazy day and minor walk in the afternoon, checking on the river level. Quite full at the moment.

Excellent weather and a nice walk out in full on sunshine. The water flow almost back to normal after yesterdays rain.
