Day 106.  Rose’s Hut. February 16, 2016

10 km
Highland Creek Hut km 2625 to  Rose’s Hut km 2635

I woke up to rain about 6am. Procrastinating paid off because it wasn’t raining when I left the hut at 10. The weather improved throughout the day.

View from the hut at 7am.

There were 2 big climbs for the day which had lots of up and down to get to the top. I had views almost all day so I was in great spirits.

I can see Lake Wanaka

Today was one of those days where  the location of the huts dictate how far I walk. I got to Rose’s Hut at 2:30. It’s the last hut on this section.  Alex got here right after I did but kept walking because he had arranged a ride from Arrowtown,  25 more kilometers. Soon after 3 nobos from UK arrived. And then, who should appear but Leo who I have been crossing paths with on and off since my campervan hitch into Nelson.
