At the tarns just below Toka trig we enjoyed the view, ate a few snacks, and tried to stay warm. Sometimes the cloud closed in, enveloping us in mist, but within a few minutes the view opened up again. Finally the cloud dispersed, lingering only further north along the range around the Oroua headwaters. None of us was in a hurry to begin the descent down Knights track, where we'd no longer be able to look down into the headwaters of the Pohangina. Even now, two days later, I miss that place.
