Due to certain circumstances my walker couldn’t join me today so I walked by myself and sung “I would walk 500 miles” song in my head.
Today’s walk can be describe as lots of up, a great lookout spot, lots of down, lots of stream crossings, some farm land and then lots of road walking.
It was a really nice trail and I saw plenty of Te Araroa signage and DOC orange triangles. I enjoyed this walk and saw no one along the way so ended up talking to the sheep at the end farm.
Tomorrow I head into the Tararuas……..yay!
