Lonely Lake and surrounds January 2013
JH & I ventured up to NW Nelson for a couple of tramping trips in January. A friend from Forest Service days and her husband also managed to fit in a bit of tramping with us. We were grateful to be able to share their bach near Takaka and be ferried around a bit.
During our roaming one of the more impressive sights in my opinion was this Douglas Range vista of Lonely Lake and the surrounding country. [We day tripped to Lonely Lake and back from Fenella hut] My photography with a cheapy digital camera doesn't do the scene justice. We met photographer & blogger Tom Akass at Fenella hut and spent some of the the time travelling to & from Lonely Lake with him. His blog of Feb 03 2013 contains some top photos of this area.

There are some neat descriptive names in this area. e.g. Dragons Teeth, The Needle and Drunken Sailors. John & I have already decided we're going to head back & spend more time in NW Nelson.
