      ... again hiked the steep hill to Fishtail Hut, located just above treeline. Here we dropped our overnight gear and, still under cloudless skies, carried on to the summit. There was a little fresh snow that slowed us down, but nothing that proved more than a slight hindrance. The summit views were superb, and with no wind to bother us we spent nearly an hour relaxing on top. George was avenged!

      ... Mr H then collapsed in front of the telly (an excuse to watch the cricket) and I read my book in the lovely window-seat. We had a simple dinner of soup and bread, although we were later invited to share some veggie curry with an English tour group (Mr H suspects they were on a Saga holiday).

      The next day, we left St Arnaud and headed to Punakaiki on the West Coast, but I will leave that for another ...

After arriving back at the car, we headed into St Arnaud to have a look at the DOC office and see if they had any information that we wanted, then we stopped for a drink at the Alpine Lodge and talked of old times ...
