Despite all efforts the Whataroa was not to be... but plan B was an awesome night and day. Ascending at night from Kelly's Creek to Carroll Hut to camp the night above 1000m in tents with the milky way spread above us. A morning traverse across Kelly's Range to descend to the Taipo at 7 mile creek. Rafting out with Wild West Adventure Company. Paul, Sebastian and the lads put on an awesome day for us bartering with gigantic gold nuggets for their services, crossing the river by rope, rafting and inflatable kayaking down the Taipo and swimming the last rapid to end the journey at the highway. We still can't agree who finished with the most gold and won another adventure...perhaps we'll all have to go... (Right Paul?) Pics to come and be added to over the next few days...Keep checking out the blog.
Awesome CACTI!
