When we left the camp at Nelson Creek (see post) the morning was misty with low cloud and drizzle.
We headed to Moana and lake Brunner stopping at Lake Haupiri on the way. As you can see the weather didn’t really improve and by the time we reached Moana it was worse so we could hardly see lake Brunner. We will have to get photos of that area next time we are in the wonderful part of the South Island.
Otira viaductMt White Bridge – turn left from the main road heading east and cross Mt White bridge. This road will take you to two DOC camps, Hawdon Shelter a standard camp site Camp in the lower reaches of the Hawdon Valley on the grassy flats and Andrews Shelter – a basic camp popular with trampers. During winter this alpine area may be covered in snow, making access difficult.
