Makara Track – 25 June

On Sunday 25th June the Clubs mystery trip headed north out of the Sunny Masterton through the rain north of Eketahuna to an overcast day east of Mangataioka.
The club trip ended up at the Waewaepa Scenic Reserve. The trip was along a nice well graded old road called Makara Track. It was a leisurely two hours to the saddle where we had lunch. Great views were seen looking west over towards the wind farms on the way up. Very little views were seen looking north into the Hawkes Bay at the top due to low cloud.
The Tuis were in full song all the way up. A nice surprise was to see a NZ Falcon flying in the wind. A nice lunch was had in the shelter before returning back down to the cars. On the trip home a nice hot brew wat the Tui Hq was a must do. Members Sandra, Denise, Laura, Mike, Stan and Jason had a great day exploring this forgotten highway.
