Trampers were Ian Bardsley, John Barrell, Alan Rogers, David Taylor and me, Keith Blayney. We were taken from Mangaweka to the Rangiwahia entrance to the Park, headed over the new overly engineered bridge over the Umutoi Creek and up to the Rangiwahia Hut, with good views in the morning.

We headed up onto the Whanahuia Range, then north over Mangamahue. The scenery, flora and fauna were varied and impressive.

Note: "Portrait" oriented and wide view photos have been reduced in size to fit on a standard screen (useful for those without high speed Internet connections), but the better landscape photos have been kept at 640x480 "wallpaper" size (marked Þ).
