No Run

A little further along to the foot of Mnt Cargil

 Google maps struggles with this area because there is only one road. At the bottom right lies State Highway 1 at its highest elevation in New Zealand and it is the starting point for the track. I am not too sure of the elevation but it took us about 2 hours of walking uphill to get to the top.
Today it was the aftermath of the big nor-wester that we had yesterday. Branches and leaves were scattered all over the city and the arborists all had their hands full dealing with clearing the roads. We got off pretty lightly with only our recycling bin deciding to head off down Glenpark Ave. It was still too windy to go for a run so we slept in an extra half hour.  At about 9 we decided to walk the Glenleith track which heads inland from the top of State highway 1 at the top of the Kilmog. It was a really lovely day so we decided to take the camera to record the event.

More photos coming...
