Pelorus River Track

We brought our final supplies for 10 days wilderness and headed off with our packs heavier than ever before.  Neither Madeleine or I are big and strong and it just kills us.  

As we approached the Pelorus River Track I spotted this little bit of sculpture on a farm and thought it was great!
Those lovely sunny days in the Queen Charlotte Track were a distant memory as the rain started to fall and yet again we were soaked to the skin. 

The Weather did improve and although we had to cross many many streams there was only one that was bit tricky.  We were waist deep in fast flowing water (not the one pictured).

On the whole it was a pretty river but the track seemed rough but I think our judgement is clouded my the weight of our packs!
