This was the start of moving upstream along the Rakaia River over several days. I am going to blog each part separately as there are so many photos. You wouldn’t believe how many I am taking, but it’s a great way to remember where we have been and what we’ve seen and done, even to remind us of some of our conversations with other people. I am only blogging a very few of the overall totals I’m taking!
We stayed for two nights at Rakaia Huts near the mouth of the Rakaia River. This was a great start to the river trip. The community here seems close knit and active and best of all down-to-earth. It had a really good feeling about it.
