Today we set off for Wheel Creek hut, a remote Westland hut that I was assured by my guides that I would be able to make. After all, it was only 6-7 km, although time guides put it at 4-6 hours.
After stopping in at the farmers place to let him know we had arrived, he gave us further directions and we took the 4WDrives along the road as far as we could get them. Another 20 minutes walk along the farm track got us to the beginning of the track. We ...
