First tramp done!




Just completed our first tramp ever, it was to Cedar Flat just out of Hokitika, New Zealand. Although it was raining quite a bit on Saturday we continued on with the tramp, and after leaving later than we should of found that the rivers were higher than normal, forcing us to use the flood route which entailed a high climb and very steep slippery descents into smaller rivers which we bolder hopped to get across (where possible, otherwise it was wet feet). Due to having to do the flood route we found it got dark before even making it to the hut so were forced to camp on the side of the track. The next day (Sunday) was a brilliant day without any rain, so we decided to head home, however getting to take the normal route across the river bed today as the rives had gone down overnight. So it was brilliant views all around the valley, one tramp we are looking forward to doing again (and this time hopefully going to make it to the hut, and natural hot pools).
