Glitch on the ridge

Two days of good weather in the Christmas holidays: lets go trekking!
The plan was to go by car where the road ends at the Cobb Lake, and then enjoy two and a half days of trekking in valleys and on ridges. Food supplies and all the stuff were packed and ready.
The car was climbed up the steep road up to the Cobb Ridge and then a marvellous panorama opened in front of us... Panorama just spoiled by the fog... Fog? Oooops, it wasn't the fog: it was the car!
We stopped where we were with the radiator boiling. The end of our trip? No, let's go trekking from here.

On the top of Cobb Ridge our car, White Shit, dies in a cloud of steam coming from the radiator. - - Cover 2012-12-22_13-24-23_Matteo We were supposed to get there, at the very end of the lake. But here we are... What to do? Shall we worry about the car? No! There is a marked trail starting just here, beside of our car: let's take it! - - Cover 2012-12-22_16-43-50_Matteo Off course we have no idea of where this path leads: our maps are for the other side of the Cobb Valley. We don't even have a tent... But in New Zealand you can always find a hut when you need it :-) - - Cover 2012-12-22_13-44-45_Matteo Often the old wood gets green. I don't know how. - - Cover
2012-12-22_17-08-05_Matteo We were quite thirsty.. Actually we were supposed to walk along a river for the whole day, so didn't fill the bottles at home. But then, at lunch time, fortunately we encounter this beautiful stream. - - Cover 2012-12-22_17-12-26_Matteo Sylvia funambulist - - Cover At 6 pm we got to this shelter. Here there is see-saw (with Sylvia on it) and a map: it seams that we are at no more than two hours from a gorgeous hut... Perfect! - - Cover 2012-12-22_17-19-48_Matteo A bridge on the way to hut. - - Cover
