Heaphy Track wry weather reporting

I recently walked the Heaphy Track. If there’s only one or two tramping trips you ever do in your life, then one of them has to be the Heaphy. Stunning changes of terrain, landscape and vegetation provide a continually changing experience.

The Department of Conservation (DoC) manages the track and all of the huts on the track. As huts go these are mostly very well equipped with gas cooking facilities and even pots and pans.

On the second day we stopped at Saxon Hut for lunch - and enjoyed the weather forecast that was supplied by the hut warden on a blackboard. The blue text was the most accurate - as you’d probably expect.

    Well, it’s a different world down there, isn’t it? And life flows on in its own pace. It doesn’t quite matter if it’s Monday or Sunday. Day or night. Cloudy or sunny. It’ll always be gorgeous and who’s seen it will always love it!
    So, who cares if it’s sunshine or showers, isn’t that right ranger John?
