I returned this afternoon from three days in the Ruahine with Jono and Laura. We walked to Kelly Knight hut then up over the tops and down to Pourangaki hut on Saturday; on Sunday we climbed the spur you see here and dropped down into Pinnacle Creek, which we followed down to the Kawhatau River and the delightful Waterfall hut. Today we started at first light, climbed back up Pinnacle Creek, then followed the tops along and down to Purity hut and eventually back to the car park. A Queen's Birthday weekend to remember — Ruahine tramping at its finest.
