It was raining for a few hours and after some hesitations I decided to hit the track. I didn’t wanted to stay another day inside the hut. The track was wet but otherwise okay. I had a lunch break at the Dracophyllum hut and the continued to the Nichols hut. The weather was wet and cold and so I was happy to arrive at a dry place. The hut is really located in an isolated place right under the walking ridge. Another guy I saw yesterday was already nat the hut and we both hoped for the weather to improve for the next day.
