We woke up to frozen tents on our first night of the Two Thumbs track!
This section of our tramp was a a little fraught at times. Phil was still a bit jet lagged and slowly getting use to being in New Zealand. On one day he took a bad fall and cut his hand and leg but managed to avoid banging his head. Madeleine was low on energy and on one particular low moment I was fed up with both of them!!

We reached the highest point on the Te Araroa trail but still a long way to go even if it is down hill from here. The ridge line we followed down was stunning and a real highlight of the walk.
