We spent about 2 hours climbing Makara Peak and while the uphill battle was pretty grueling, the rewarding view was pretty spectacular! The best reward of all - the sky was clear enough to see the South Island from where we were resting. I’m such a sucker for a good view!
Pete x 2 deciding the best route down. They picked something called the North Face... We weren't riding down Everest but it felt pretty close!
The trip down the mountain was pretty rough on me but Pete (squared) enjoyed it thoroughly.
By the time we walked through our front door, my legs could barely carry me. The next morning, I was still too sore to do much so we settled for a day of walking through the gardens, reading on the deck, and cooking and baking yummy treats.
All set for another week in kiwi land!
** Not sure why, but there are so many people named Pete over here!
