Some more non sailing activities

In June we did a short tramp into Blythe hut with some friends. The weather was terrible but we had a good time catching up over a bottle of wine (or two) in the hut.

Last week we went down to Ruapehu for some tramping and skiing. the first weekend was spent in Ohakune and we had one day skiing at Turoa with some friends. On Sunday we went for a short tramp into Mangatuturu Hut (on the 'Round the Mountain' circuit).

View of Ngarahoe driving to the start of our second tramp we walked up to the saddle between Tongariro and Ngarahoe and down to Otarere Hut and back. We had wanted to climb Ngarahoe and possibly ski down but both times we passed it was in cloud.
