26 July 2018 – It was a quick trip back to the Matukituki valley, Pearl Flat & Liverpool hut
New year’s trip to start 2017
So yes we cheated by getting a boat to Christmas Village and getting picked up at Freshwater. This cut about 4 nights off. It still was a very hard but very enjoyable 7 days walking. Lots of mud and some steep slippery banks
End of 2016 trip to Stewart Island
Flight to Invercargill and ferry to Oban gave us a few hours to have a quick walk into Invercargill.
Time to stop and reflect. 8 years now.
In Christchurch, but still a long way from Aspiring National Park. I can see the hills from the office here. They call out.
