General:

Was on the verge of pulling the pin on today’s walk! Weather looked average and it’s a great hut for a zero day. After brekky my conscience got the better of me and I braved the cold. Started with a little climb up to Pirongia Peak then a cool walk down Tahuanui Track to Kaniwhaniwha Campsite, then Nikau Track to Limeworks Loop Road & TePahu which I followed the rest of the way to Whatawhata. Lots of crazy looking fungi in the Pirongia section…must be damp all year by the looks.
