Tosay- 14.5km from Hurunui Hut 3 to Locke Stream Hut
Today was a good day where nothing particularly remarkable happened, but it was really enjoyable.
Some early morning excitement crossing Cameron Stream on a 3 wire bridge woohoo.
The trail followed the forest up to Cameron hut, an old tin shack hut in a picturesque location.
After a couple more hours I reached Harper Biv, a cute little 2bunker about 1.5km before the pass.
The trail to Harpers Pass was a bit of a bushwhack and a few stream crossings. The humidity came up and really sweaty today!
et Bram [Belgium] at the top of the Pass and we had a leisurely break of over an hour, relaxing, eating, talking.
he way down required harder concentration, it was a lot of washed out track so steep bits to watch out for.
It was beautiful coming down into the valley though, I feel like it’s amazing watching the landscape change each section.
Tonight I’m at Locke Stream Hut, another beautiful wooden hut . A bunch of other hikers showed up who had camped at the hot springs the night before.
