Kapakapanui – 6 May

On Saturday 6th May the club trip was to Kapakapanui hut. Two members Jason & Sandra left Masterton at a leisurely start of 10am. We drove to Waikanae where we meet the other two Becks and Ben. It was then off to the Ngatiawa road end. A short walk across farm land saw us into the first of the stream crossings. Lunch was had and the track junction in the sun before the climb up to the hut. The trip up to the hut took 2.45min. A quick cuppa tea, at the hut then we were off to the bush edge to watch the sun go down over the Kapiti Coast. The views were amazing. Mt Ruapahu to the north, Mt Taranaki/Egmont to the west and the Kaikoura Mountains to the south. It was a quick retreat back down to the hut before dark. We were glad to have put our sleeping bag on our bunks as on return found there was ten of us staying in the hut tonight. Everyone was very welcoming and we had a great night chatting and telling stories
Sunday dawned overcast but clear. A late start again and we were off over the top today and heading back down to the cars. The view was not as clear today but fantastic never the less. We got back to the cars in time as it started to rain. The drive home and back to the sunshine of the Wairarapa. A great weekend was had by all.
