I've finally cracked out this guide to climbing Mt Richmond from the Nelson side. Maybe it will inspire you. Sure inspires me, I've been up there a few times. Better to have great weather, although I've done it in the clouds a couple of times as well.

DOC is whacking the prices up on the Great Walks. The Milford will go from $54 to $70 a night. Apparently there is a shortfall due to the high cost of servicing the tracks and huts. Anyone under 18 is still free.

But no word on changing the $5 a night for a standard hut. Or the annual Backcountry Pass at $122.

For now.

And the blog from Easter when I went into Abel Tasman National Park.

Worked out how to add captions, etc, now.

Images from a trip up to look at the relocated Mt Fell Hut on the Anzac long weekend.

Here's an account of my last tramp of the summer. Might have got it out of my system for a while.
Overall it's been one wet summer. And now I'm back in Nelson it's started raining here after only 10mm in the last two months. No complaints, I'm not in my tent.

Yay! I finished those three recent route guides. Each of them has a decent slide show at the bottom of the page to give you a visual picture of what you are in for. The top of the Severn River is particularly dramatic.

Just finished the writeup on the first of three tracks from this summer. I have to get all the images and huts sorted before publishing these route guides, so that's why it all takes time. Will publish the other two in the next few days. Once I sort out the slide shows.

Here's what happened on my travels across Marlborough. Mostly easy walking, lots of farm tracks across Molesworth.

This was my route from Kaikoura to the Boyle Village near the Lewis Pass. Turns out it is 212 km. No wonder I'm having a week or two off from walking before I go back for the Lewis to Arthurs Pass section.
