Oh weekends, how I adore thee! On Saturday, Tim, Court, Daniel, Johanna, Anna and I set out to conquer Otago Peninsula's highest point at a whopping 408 vertical meters (1,339 feet). We battled rain, wind gusts and telltale signs of sheep to reach the summit.
December 1st officially marked the beginning of summer, so I have high hopes that the weather will cooperate in the future so that I can bring you some substantially more impressive photos.
In the mean time, I'm happily taking advantage of holiday sales to acquire gear for a longer tramping trip to Lake Monowai at the end of the month. This will be a 4-day trip, so fingers crossed Mother Nature is getting the rain out of her system now so that we'll stay nice and dry at the end of the month.
