Luckily, the rain abated for the day I was at this campground, including during a spectacular sunset.
I tried to start my van the next morning, only to discover the battery was dead.
Got a jump from a friend and moved it over to do the hike.
The hike is the start of the Heaphy Trek, a four-day “Great Walk.”
The scenery is beautiful. I was hiking with a wonderful woman who saw the beauty in every tree and flower. It made me appreciate the scenery around me a bit more.
The hike ended up taking a good portion of the day.
Unfortunately, it was too rainy to see another sunset, but it was still a nice, relaxing evening.
