Tracking in Arthurs Pass
In this picture you see the party that went on the tracking trip to Otira Valley in Arthurs Pass on Waitangi Day 2014. We took the 45 minute track to the foot bridge. The young ones and youngs at heart stopped at the end of marked track at the foot bridge. The courageous ones went about 30-40 minutes further up on 'mountaineering only' track. Hope everyone had fun. Those who missed out this time, keep your eyes an ears open for the news about next trip!!!
