A Wilderness Waterway Episode
The Haast-Hollyford Highway is a long-standing proposal to link Haast via the Hollyford Valley to Milford Sound and Te Anau in the South Island, it dates back over 100-years but has never happened due to costs and needs. In the past 10 years it’s come up on the radar as tourism operators mostly, are looking at ways to get people in and out of Milford Sound easier and quicker. There’s no doubt it’ll be a magnificent scenic highway, as it’ll traverse through Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks, and gouge through the Olivine Wilderness Area, but at what stage do we stop putting roads through such places?
Full Day of Battering
The rains everyone had been waiting for had finally come. It was time for creeking!
A group of friends awoke early and all met at an Okere Falls residents house to figure out what the day had to offer. Plans had been made before I got there, so I jumped into my car, and followed the truck carrying the rest of the crew. I soon noticed that my fuel warning light was on, but I had no way of telling the boys ahead of me.
