      Catlin River

      May 13, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      The first couple pictures are from the Nugget Point yesterday.

      24km of hiking today. We did the Catlin River-Wisp track which started and ended right at our campsite. The first 12km were lush green forest that had a very jungle-esque feel. Green moss was growing everywhere. We crossed several wire suspension bridges as we followed the river. The hike started great with the sun shining and slowly turned grey and rainy. By the end of the first 12 km we got a little bored with the hike as it was just forest and no viewpoints. The return route followed an old forestry road so we sped up our pace. To our surprise the hike ended at a location that had recently been logged. Quite the barren contrast to the earlier lush forests.

      Back at the car, we continued our drive to Papatowai Campsite as the rain started again.
