A fine day tramp2019 11 24 billies knob

Billies Knob, Kahurangi National Park – Sunday 24 November 2019

The trip picked up people at Wakefield and Tadmor for a relatively early start at Courthouse Flat. Climbing up the ridge we made the forest edge before it got too hot and we achieved the saddle for a noon lunch stop. The top of the hill looked cloudy but about half the party decided to continue toward the top. Three decided halfway up to return to the saddle and just as well for myself as I contracted bad cramps in both my legs. All I can say from here on down was kaka were sighted halfway down to the start of the track down to Blue Creek. Once we got to Blue Creek some went for the short walk up Blue Creek but I just contemplated they agony I had endured and hoped the last bit would be better.

In summary all except myself enjoyed a fine days tramping.

The group included Joy, Sue D, Christine, Jeff, Marian, Mike, Arif, Colin, Maria and Rob (scribe).
