Cooch's pics of Ruahine xing. All loaded now.

Here are a selection of Cooch's pics of our Ruahine crossing that go with the story. It may take me a few days of off and on as I get time to load them. There are approx 6.

Purity hut. A couple of hours from the road end.



Brucec glassing the Pourangaki not far below Wooden Peg, looking south/east. Saw tooth ridge in background.



Cooch pointing towards Rangi saddle from the Mangaweka Trig area. Waipawa saddle on the skyline extreme left.



On the way down Trig creek to the Kawhatau.



The power of water. This is where a flood has left a rock. Rangi creek.



Brucec on the Waikamaka side of Rangi saddle



In the Waipawa headwaters.



What can I say? A very silly pic taken inside  Waikamaka hut.  Smiley

The pic above was the only looking we did, for about 5 mins at 9am.
Didn't blunder across any, but there was sign everywhere we went. Probably the most in the Kawhatau and on the Purity tops. Not so much in the smaller creek beds. If I wanted a deer, I sure as hell wouldn't walk as far as we did, and Waterfall is a lovely place, but the Ruahines will offer up deer in much easier spots. Still nothing wrong with where I met you in the Orua or the Ngamoko lower bush and tops from your side.

I am amazed, firstly becuase ive had too much to drink  and everthing amazes me when Im drunk but  secondly, because of the diversity of the land forms and the weather changes over such short periods.

We know it's there though, look at the way the grass is flattening itself down in the second and third to last pics. Wink

Great photos guys, the boulder in the tree is amazing. Did it take you long to recover or was it just a walk in the park for you two?
  

Dear Noah,
We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving till 5.
Sincerely, Unicorns
