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

It’s so nice to hear from you. I only have about 8 hiking days left! Then I will have about a month to play…. which for me means hike.
