Walking New Zealand
A day tramp in Akaroa: Curry Track/Purple Peak Track
and also the kahikatea (white pine). The signs were very educational to us all, as we made a point of stopping and looking.
We then headed back up the Curry Track which was rather steep but we took one step at a time making good progress and we had all day. We were all reasonably quiet on the way up the steep grade as we were
all saving our breath and energy to get to the top and eventually we realised we were at the top of the Curry Track.
We continued from the top to the other side where we knew there was a picnic table for lunch. Everyone had time to recharge after our climb with a good lunch and many had taken some fantastic photos.
The weather was perfect for tramping. We had the views of Akaroa and beyond and once we got to the top and had lunch we had the views of the other side facing Stony Bay and Hinewai.
We headed down via Purple Peak Track with stunning views once again. All of us were pleased at what we had achieved. It was a great day had by all and extra special as we had not been tramping for some weeks.
