Weather at Leon Kinvig hut

At Leon Kinvig hut the wind raged most of the day and the cloud hung low. Crossing the Ngamoko Range would have been possible, but might have entailed crawling. We were glad we weren't due out until the following day.

This is a photograph looking down river from the hut verandah.

Moody, dramatic, beautiful.
And no doubt more than a little 'brisk'.

Thanks EC. Surprisingly perhaps, the temperature wasn't too bad. Not exactly tropical, and on the tops the wind chill would have been extreme, but at the hut we didn't feel the need to light a fire.

Looks haunted. Not to be messed with.

Definitely, Zhoen. To be treated with respect.

Kia ora Pete,
A fine day to be there though and probably not far off putting the billy on for a brew :)

Kia ora Robb. It was great to be able to relax there for the day with you and John.
