Rain in the western Canterbury high country saw us retreating from Lake Pearson. Baldy Hill became Rabbit Hill. We parked on route 73 halfway between Lake Lyndon and Porters Pass and headed up the Trig M Track.
The wind on top was quite fierce so we had lunch at a small patch of beech trees. As we headed up r Rabbit Hill the wind was trying to blow us over. Jerry and Kerry turned back to the lunch spot while Penny, Peter and Merv struggled on to Rabbit Hill. Retracing our steps, we noted that as we neared the car the wind dropped and it was even warm.
Peter Umbers was our leader accompanied by Merv Meredith, Penny Coffey, Jerry Jacques and Kerry Moore. (KM)
