Pirongia Walk 28-08-2022

Pirongia Sunday 28 August


After morning tea in the carpark eleven of us set off in high spirits on a beautiful morning for a day in the bush. The track into the nikau loop walk and caves is becoming more attractive with the maturing native trees and shrubs along the way. 

Upon reaching the caves one brave tramper (C.S) showed us how it was done without getting stuck midway.  Others less intrepid ventured in a little way but chose caution over valor. Once C.S had been reunited with the rest of us we carried on along the Bell Track only to be stopped when Dianne who had gone ahead returned to say the track was impassable.  We returned to the Nikau Loop Track which led us to the doc campsite where we had lunch while we soaked up the sun in the enjoyable company of good friends,

We returned to Collingwood Street at 3.15pm after a most agreeable day in the countryside.

Many thanks to Dianne and Colin for organizing the tramp.
