Remotologging #356

This leg was a return trip from Omarama, through Haast Pass and back up the West Coast to Karamea. I spent three days working my way up and having a look at a few new gravel/4X4 tracks on the way. From the entire 3 weeks I have a ton of new tracks and campsites to go up on the website which will follow soon.

Lindis Pass. I did a lot of tarmac on this trip, normally I�d be itching for off road stuff but with the weather being so good and such inviting roads it made for many enjoyable cruzy days

There were a couple of cool dirt tracks off Lindis Pass with great 360 views

With the day running out I parked up for the night, this was the set of cabins I stayed in at Lake Hawea Holiday Park, all dressed up in bright colours

I pulled over to let this herd past, I have never seen such number of playful sheep, leaping and frolicking all over the place. I thought it may have been something in the grass so I had three big mouthfuls myself, I didn�t feel any different nor did I feel like frolicking so I carried on my way

Not many of these about, I wonder how often they get used?

After staying in Ross the night I headed north up the old rail track. It is becoming overgrown in gorse, if it is not cut back soon it�ll soon be unrideable

It�ll be a shame if this track becomes too overgrown as it has some cool views over the wetlands
