    To Misery and back

    I have just got back from a few days spent in the Nelson Lakes area and will let the pictures do the talking.

    The track is aptly named. Good to see they have put a toilet up there. Last time I was up that way there were nice little parcels behind the hut amongst the boulders.

    That photo of the better half with the lake in the background is a wall hanger mate.

    Thanks. It is a pretty neat place. Not hard to get a good photo.

    The last time I ever carried a whole deer off the hills was Mt Misery. 40 years on, my back has not forgiven me.

    Thanks its 25 years, since I was last up there, got caught in a bad blizzard first time in. Two of us came very close to perishing, hypothermic cold to the point, that I thought I was dreaming, when a gap in the fog showed a little hut, we were desperately looking for, mate has already shed his jacket, the rain/wind/ cold and river crossings ensured, we would have been in real trouble, if that little bivi wasn't found.
    Any how, thanks for the photos, its a lovely place in the first rays of morning sun shine, and in the half dozen trips, I did onto misery, always got onto deer or chamois
