Out and about
Schroeder and I continued our Routeburn campaign with a bigger hill walk today. We left the Bridle Path 2/3 of the way up, and went up the Kahukura Track around Castle Rock.
Schroeds surveys the scene. Leaving the Bridle Path.
The Horotane Valley, Christchurch's main source of glasshouse produce.
It was quite alpine in feel, with tussocks and big rock bluffs - and great views of the city. We joined the Summit Road and walked back down for a km or so to the Bridle Path and another thigh-burning descent to the car. I had a snooze in the afternoon.
