Our proposed trip in the Kaweka FP, from the quarry to Iron Whare and out via Kaweka Flats, was not possible due to Kaweka Road closure after heavy snow earlier in the week. An alternate tramp to Black Birch Bivvy from Lotkow Road was proposed. This then changed to Parks Peak Hut from Sentry Box. In the event, the weather had the final say. A weather watch for Hawke’s Bay had heavy rain showers for the day.
The trip was cancelled and we all enjoyed a day inside at home.
This is the view from the house at Puketitiri Road. It is what you can’t see that is the point. The front paddock is only just visible, as we are in cloud at 700 ft.
