Glimpse of Lake Brunner from Mt French July 2011

Glimpse of Lake Brunner from Mt French  July 2011

This photo was taken while climbing Mt French and looks down past point 1233m, where there is a radio repeater mast, to Lake Brunner. Mt French is quite a popular walk in summer when there is no snow. There is a track and poled route to the summit where there is a fallen down trig. The vegetation & views are similar to those encountered on the Mt Te Kinga walk.

The DOC sign gives a walking time of 4hrs one way. This trip it took 2.5hrs going up including some short stops. The snow was nice and hard & quite good walking. A check of of an old diary revealed that the last trip up in 1975 also took 2.5hrs.

The map pointers show the summit of Mt French (1305m) & Point 1233m.
