This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
I headed to Otaki forks over the weekend but headed north this time, towards Waitewaewae hut. I crossed a swing bridge on the Otaki river. I headed up the track which had quite a lot of windfall to clamber over. There are also a lot of beautiful Kiokio / Crown ferns, translucent Heruheru / Prince of Wales ferns and Raurenga /Kidney ferns, species we don't get up in the northern half of the north Island. There are also stands of mature Rimu trees which are hundreds of years old.
I got to the hut by the evening. It is a nice hut, maintained by the Hutt Valley Tramping club, and certainly spacious enough for large groups.
In the morning it was drizzly and rainy. Not really rainy but a bit grey and overcast. It was still great to be outside though.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it.
