monkeysh1ne

Great fan of the outdoors especially my backyard range - the 'Tararuas' (Tararua Forest Park). Have tramped fairly extensively in the North Island and some of the top of the South Isl.

Puteore Hut

Lovely little 6 bunk hut (standard) in the Whanganui region (Matemateonga Range). Track from Upper Mangahu Rd badly overgrown and easily lost without advanced navigation. Best not attempted if not familiar with area. DOC website stating Puniwhakau Track closed.   More ▶︎

Kaitoke to Greytown via Tutuwai & Mt.Reeves, Tararua Forest Park

A two day jaunt to clear the head and get a little much needed exercise. Oh and to enjoy some fine weather in my favourite back yard wilderness =)   More ▶︎
