We left Twizel around 8:30 am with our backpack loaded with 7 days food. We followed the SH8 reaching a salmon farm and saying goodbye to Mount Cook. Our backpack were really heavy and we took several rest until reaching Lake Ohau shore. The track is still a gravel and dirt road and still not easy, I still think it should be the easiest but gravel are rolling under our soles and made the progress harder. The trees were beautiful, the autumn colours were simply incredible. We arrived finally on the shore, exhausted by our load and pitched our tent enjoying the sunset on the lake.

Nous sommes partis de Twizel sur les coups de 8 heure et demi, nos sacs chargés de nourriture. Pendant les premiers kilomètres nous avons suivis la nationale 8, puis une route de gravier après avoir passé une pisciculture sur le bord de Ruataniwha Lake. Les couleurs automnales sont féériques et le bleu laiteux du lac rehausse leurs tonalités. Après de nombreuses pauses, nous arrivons sur les bords de Lake Ohau où nous décidons de planter le camps. Nous profitons des derniers rayons de soleil sur le bord de l’eau, puis établissons notre campement un plus loin. Ce fut un jour fatiguant, ne serait ce que pour le poids de nos sacs à dos.
