After a few hectic weekends in a row we were looking forward to heading into the foothills to relax. Mark Hooker had booked out (the much improved) Holdsworth Lodge and filled it up with an array of friends. Great to meet some new people.
The weather was beautiful and this roadend must be the most beautiful in the Tararuas, the forest is so magnificient and the river sparkles its way down the valley. As is habit, we only took photos of Mae. She is just getting to the age where we can put her down in the bush and she can crawl around and not look too vulnerable. In fact she looks quite happy in a garden gnome sort of a way.
