    ... 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!

    We spent that night at the cozy ...

    ... here can change in an instant. We arrived at Rocks Hut about 45 minutes before dark. Sharing our hut tonight are two Kiwi hunters, Peter and Greg. They've been in this range for ten days and are on the prowl for some deer. Both are in their late 50s and are unemployed. They shoot things for a living! They make a fair wage shooting possums; they shoot deer, pigs, and goats for their food. Really nice guys. It's a good feeling when you're obliged to share a hut yet ...

The difference is they're all in tents and having to cook etc outside so they've got as much skin covered as possible and continually having to ...

    ... and from there onto the 4WD track up to the hut. Most of the uphill stroll was in dappled sunlight so wasn't too hot until we got to the last section which was open. Had a read of the hut book while eating lunch. The book dated back to the old hut in 2008. The new hut was built 2009. Wrote our names on the piece of paper someone ...

    ... called Farewell Spit. This huge, 35 km long crescent-shaped spit of beach was not the nice beach we'd been told about, but I had read about this area a little bit. The wind was absolutely howling here (a regular occurrence, I guess) causing the sand dunes to constantly shift, and unfortunately the tide was coming up, so there wasn't a whole lot to see, other than the spray of the waves crashing on the beach and blowing right across the narrow spit of land. ...
