Nov 21 day 82 Kiwi Hope Hut to Hurunui Hut # 3 8:15-4:30 27 km
A cloudy drizzly day past a lake and up some river valleys. A couple of wet stream crossings, but rivers all had swinging bridges. Often the trail would go up into the woods for some serious mud and root hiking when there was dry open pasture land just down from it. All in all an uninteresting day’s walk. Alex and Courtney also went to this hut, so there was good company. At the hut when I got there were two kiwis and a Londoner who are doing the TA South Island. Hut was a little crowded, but still a pleasant evening. Ho hum.
