Blue Range Hut
On Monday 3rd April John, Nigel and Jason popped up to Blue Range Hut which is about two hours walk uphill from the Kiriwhakapapa Road End. The mission was to dismantle the water tank and clean it out and return it to the tank stand. The reason for the cleaning was somebody had contaminated the water supply. We removed a large amount of soot and ash as well as AA Batteries and sardine tins and a lot of paper magazines which someone had dumped in their back in February. The water supply is now safe to drink after the rain this week. Some other jobs were undertaken while there. Then we had a great easy walk back down to the road end.
