A post-night shift adventure 23rd - 25th November 2018. Friends who grab pick you up when you are too tired to drive and take you on an adventure are amazing! Shea and I walked into Jacko Flat Hut up the Crooked River Friday afternoon, the others joined us after work (the middle of the night!).
The next day we headed further up the Crooked, to Top Crooked Hut for a wee lunch break! We headed up onto the tops and over to Lake Morgan and eventually Lake Morgan Hut, finding some interesting souvenirs from the nearby Gloriavale (who incidentally we struggled to get in touch with for access, hence why we ended up doing the route we did).
After a lovely night at the Hut and some surprise fantastic dessert from Lorraine! We headed up Mt O'Shanessy, and along the tops we could see from the Hut the night before, stopping for a spot of bouldering and eventually dropping down a fairly rough, but fruitful (so many supplejack sprouts), spur off 1231!
Thanks to the farmer who lent us the key to make access possible from the Crooked!
Thanks to Marmot for the mug!
And thanks to Shea Hickmann, Lorraine Johns, Helen Liley, Sooji Clarkson and Eric Skea for all the trip planning and great times =)
