Hugh suggested I use some of his photos, as I have not been out and about lately.
A good while ago we went on the Kahikatea Walk,, it was a very wet day!!!
Another of Hugh’s photos, with friends we went on a tramp from the Ohakune Road to Blyth Hut, this was a fine hot day, in February 2009. Summer gear, but thermals in a pack as we walked to a higher altitude of 1380metres, or 4527 feet above sea level. I was not doing very well, and on the return tramp, had several stops, with angina. Bruce commented later he thought he might have to call a chopper, I was pale, maybe “ grey to white” is what he said, and very short of breath. A last sit down, he took my pack, and sort of between Hugh and Bruce, they managed to get me up the sets of steps that are way too high for short ladies.However all was well, we arrived back at the wagon, to everyone’s relief, another sit down, cold drink, and on our way home.
This is a beautiful area, and I am so thankful we did the tramp back then. Thanks, Bruce and Jeanette, great companions.
The answer to yesterday’s photo, spot me if you can,…second row down, 3rd from the left. We were a very happy group of pupils in those days.
