Pisgah Hill – Abel Tasman National Park2022 10 01 Pisgah Hill

Saturday 1 October 2022

Saturday dawned overcast, with a forecast of strong cold south-east winds and drizzle.

That didn’t faze the nine hardy souls who had booked for the trip.

In the event we hardly needed parkas for much of the day, and we were under the tree canopy most of the time, which kept the cold wind at bay.

Not even a handful of stream crossings dampened our enthusiasm.

Leaving from the Canaan carpark, the ups and downs of the Pisgah ridge kept us warm in the morning, and after lunch we enjoyed the shelter of the Wainui River valley, with even some weak sunshine.

All in all, a great day out, taking six and a half hours in total.

We were: Rob, Maria, Marian, Jenny, Edward, Chris, Liz, Joy and David S (leader and scribe).
