The W1 & W2 walkers got off on the corner of Wallington & Devonshire roads, walking up Devonshire before heading across a paper road to Matakanui township.

A picture says a thousand words, as we can see by a couple of old stags performing for the camera. It must have been a long tiring walk as other photos seem to be showing some of the walkers lying down having a rest.

Meantime the W3s and runners drove to Matakanui, before heading up some of the tracks towards the Thompson gorge track, the faster runners going uphill before wandering round  a water-race  before dropping back down to the bus.

Another wonderful harrier outing, with the exception of starting off into a head wind. However there always comes a time when the wind is at your back. You can never please everyone, can you.
