The trip was good. Very good. The weather fine, even when it was overcast.
The hike to the first hut heavy, but interesting. The hike to the second hut glorious. Nice mountain pass with great views, and a lovely valley to end up in.
And the side trip to Lake Crucible in one word unforgettable.
This picture shows one of the beauties of the lake. If you sit on the stone in the lower right corner, you will see the entire face of rock reflected into the blue lake. Very hard to get onto a picture, but very beautiful nonetheless.
On the trip I met a group of four very decent Kiwis: Alan, Scot, Steve and Collin with whom I spent some good times, and who were eager to play card games and Koehandel.
Oh, and the trip back… I decided against taking an airplane. Just didn’t seem flash enough.
