Across the Tops - Photo Essay by Barry Durrant

3-5 September 2011

The big High came in over the weekend and we went for it. Still plenty of snow across the Southern Crossing tops which made our Sunday interesting as we crossed from Fields Hut to Elder Hut, but a great day with expansive views. Down the ridge to the Snowy and Waiotauru tracks was not so hot; the tracks were hard to get through after windfalls from recent snowstorms and by the time we had cut our way down the track to the road end it was a ten hour day.
