It is more than a half marathon.
We are walking from the Saxon Hut through the rolling Gouland Downs red tussock land to Mackay Hut and down the moss and fern clad Mackay hill track to Lewis hut on the banks of the Heaphy river.
Come walk with us.
Into the Mackay Downs
To Mackay Hut for lunch.
As we follow the track downhill the gentle rain moistens the mosses and ferns.
A peek at the Heaphy river far below.
The Heaphy river meets the Tasman Sea.
The stream supplying water to the hut has dried up and they have helpfully filled water jerry cans for us to use.
