10 March The Grand Tetons in summer and winter

The Grand Tetons in summer and winter

When Sheena Hudson returned to Wellington in 2012 from some summer hiking in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Mary Inglis said to her, "Ah but you haven't seen it in winter!" With such a challenge from her old friend, Sheena went back in the winter of 2013 and spent a week snowshoeing and dog sledding in this amazing Park.

Morison Bush club and family camping, on the weekend of March 07 and 08, or join us on Friday evening as well.

Twice a year the Tararua Tramping Club visits the Wairarapa for a club, family and friends camp and get together at Morison Bush, on the first full weekend of March and first full weekend of December. It's a great trip for young families, teenage families, and club members old and young, who just want to catch up and chill out.

TTC always organises a great weekend, so come and enjoy a relaxing weekend in the sun, lazing by, swimming in, walking along, or kayaking on the Ruamahanga River.
