This weekend Bessie and I hiked the Greenstone – Mavora Walk. On Saturday morning at 8AM we took the Info + Track bus from Queenstown, pass Glenorchy and into the Greenstone Carpark where we started the big 50km weekend! The first day we walked through the Greenstone and once reaching the Greenstone Hut made our way into the Passburn Valley. Up and down, over and under through hard ground and soft we eventually made it to the Taipo Hut where we spent Saturday night boiling creek water to drink and playing games.
Sunday morning we headed over a swing bridge and 12 km later reached the Boundary Hut. From here we kept on walking and eventually made it to Mavora Lake which we followed all the way until the end! Our ride had a bit of car troubles back in Queenstown so we hitched our way to Mossburn with two kiwi blokes from Gore – riding in the back of their dairy farm truck!
