NZ DAY 122
NELSON LAKES TRAVERS SABINE CIRCUIT: John Tait Hut to Travers Hut 15KM (Total KM's walked 1271)
Another lazy start with us hitting the track at around 10am as we only had a 3 hour walk today. However it was all up hill with several creek crossings. The scenery was stunning..... would have been better with blue sky . The drizzle was intermittent and not heavy so it was a pleasant walk. Did a 20 minute side trip to Travers Falls which was gorgeous. Crossing the Travers River we could see high in the mountains and there was a stunning cascade of water from the top disappearing into the mountain to suddenly reappear about 3-4 metre below it was truely nature at its best. When we finally reach the hut it was a delightful surprise nestled at the base of Mount Travers . Would love to see it when there was snow on the mountains.
HIGHLIGHT: Coming out of the forest and seeing the hut.
LOWLIGHT: Thinking about tomorrow’s down hill slide😭
Today I am grateful for the DOC lady in Wellington who convinced us to do this trail it is just perfect. Grateful for good weather and warm hut. Grateful for my legs and how strong they have become. Grateful for minutes everyday that highlight how great life can be.
