This weekend I did a run from the Marchant Road end. I was intending to head over the main range and meet up with Rowena, Ross, Gavin, Steve and Jenny at Totara Flats. Just as I was coming around the Dress Circle a nasty front poured over the tops and I found myself flat on my butt. The wind ripped up and I could barely stand so I was forced to turn around, or otherwise be very very late. I went down Bull Mound and stayed at Cone Hut for the night. It was quite cosy with the rats to keep me company. In the morning I headed over to Totara Flats and met up with Rowena, Ross and Gavin and we walked out. Pretty mellow weekend in the end, but it still felt a bit tiring for some reason.
