... so we started from Picton main car park which added an hour to the walk. The weather was drizzly and misty with poor visibility, and when we reached the view point above the end of the Snout, we realised our mistake. There was still 40 minutes to the end and 40 minutes back. It was not a good idea, so we turned back.

By the time we ...

We had stayed in a DOC (Department of Conservation) Camp the night before – not cheap at $15pp but it was in a beautiful location and had hot showers, ...
