Today a milestone was reached. At least for me. After being closed for ages, because of damage done by the earthquake, the Taylors mistake walkway was officially opened today. My favourite track has been improved significantly. New wide pathways, new steps, fences etc. It was a delight to walk to the top with stunning views along the way. I had to come back on my blog to tell you this!
Drinking a well deserved cup of coffee on the top, next to an old jeep from 1942 and MB are my initials of course. More interesting however is the little grey building behind the van. This used to be a meteorological hut, taken to the Antarctica for captain Scott in 1911.
In the last 40 years it was in private care of the Crichton family. They have given it to DOC who saved it from a crumbling clifftop in Sumner less than a week ago. DOC placed it on Godley Head and is going to restore it.
