Cobb Damm Short Walks
While camping at the head of the Cobb Dam we did an number of short walks including visiting the historic huts in the area - February 2014.

Cobb Valley to Kakapo Peak
The track up the Cobb Valley to Fenella Hut is easy and pleasant tramping. We by passed the hut and camped on the ridge leading to Waingaro Peak. The next day we carried on to Kakapo Peak before returning to Fenella - February 2014.

Around Adelaide Tarn
Adelaide Tarn is our favourite spot in Kaharangi. The lovely tarn with the backdrop of the Dragons Teeth makes this a special area. We spent two days looking around and climbing Mt Douglas- March 2014.

Adelaide Tarn to Boulder Lake
From Adelaide Tarn we made our way to Boulder Lake via The Needle and Green Saddle. We spent two sunny days exploring around, climbing up to Lake Clara and going to the old miner's dam at the outlet - March 2014.

Heaphy to MOW Hut on Mackay Downs
It was some years since we last did the Heaphy with the family. This time we wanted to go to the seldom visited Ministry of Works Hut on the Mackay Downs. The hut was built at the time a road was propossed to link Karamea with Golden Bay. Coming out from the hut in the mist was interesting - March 2014.

Blue Lake in Winter
For our winter trip this year we headed to BLue Lake in Nelson Lakes National Park hoping to find snow in the the Sabine Valley and at the lake. However very little snow was around so we didn't get to use our snow shoes or crampons.  The days were fine but with a strong cold southerly wind. - July 2014

Pouakai Circuit - Mt Egmont
While travelling around Mt Egmont we decided to do the Pouakai Circuit - Mt Egmont and finally got a day and a half of fine weather. Later camping at Dawson Falls we got a good dumping of snow overnight. - November 2014.

Dusky Track
We revisited The Dusky Track volunteering on a DOC mid season check and clear the track. Going in as the rain started to clear resulted in a good week of weather and an enjoyable trip. - Feb 2015

George Sound Track
This trip had been or our todo list for some time but the George Sound Track is rugged and requires transport at both ends. As a result it is not often tramped. We decided the time had come to get it done. - Feb 2015.

Kea Basin - Rees Valley
While filling in time waiting for settled weather we decided to overnight to Kea Basin it's a delightful spot and the rock bivvy is a good camping spot. Next morning we head up the ridge towards Earnslaw beofre returning back down the valley - Mar 2015.

Carroll Hut and Kelly Hill
While travelling back to Christchurch we stopped off near Otira to tramp up to Carroll Hut and Kelly Hill. The hut is fairly new and in a great position above the bushline. We also walked up Kelly Hill to the transmitter. - Mar 2105.
