Hiking the Te Araroa: Queens Charlotte Walkway: March 2016

I had various plans for walking a number of TaT sections over the summer, unfortunately the lousy weather this year has put paid to most of them. In particular I was forced to cancel my Harpers Pass trip as a big storm rolled in and I've had to put off two attempts on the Mingha-Deception Route for similar reasons.

Not wanting the 2015-2016 Summer to be a total wash out I decided to do a cheeky tramp of the first section of the TaT in the South Island, the Queen Charlotte Walkway.

With that in mind I give you my section hike of the Queen Charlotte Track: part1 and QCT part 2...
