Days 128 - 130 Resting and weather delay

Saturday 15 to Monday 17 February

Hanmer Springs

The original intention had been to stay in Hanmer Springs of a couple of days. I love this small town. I had a massage and spent time in the hot pools. On Sunday the weather forecast was giving heavy rain warnings for Arthur's Pass. That is where I am heading. I will be over Harper Pass and in that region in two days, and there are significant river crossings. So the decision was made to stay in Hanmer for an extra day. Far preferable to waiting out the weather in a hut.

We filled today with rafting, which was more like a gentle float down the river because it is so low at the moment, and a jet boat rise back. Great touristy things to do. Back on the trail tomorrow.
