Heaphy Track SuccessHi everyone,More Like This
I recently returned from a 4 day hike, covering ~80km.
We were a group of 7, meeting up with the other 2 in our group on the 2nd night.
It was the single largest challenge that I have faced, and called on muscles that I did not know existed!

The first day was the hardest push - from a starting point of about 100m elevation we continued to the peak of the track at 915m. Uphill the whole day but it provided some amazing scenery such as old-rich forest covered in thick fog & light rain. Not many opportunities to stop for photos, since we were against the clock. We ended up reaching our hut (Perry Saddle Hut) at around 7pm.
The 2nd day was easy by comparison and my favourite. I compare the first-half of the day to that of Roha
