Camminata and scampagnata della Dante!

Our walk last Sunday was great, the sun shone and even if the tracks were a little (just a little) hard at times we were rewarded with great views at the top!

Massimo lead us to the Hau Hau track going up, and the Coman on the way down.

You can see the Karekare circuit here.

Going up and up...

… and coming down

Back to Karekare!

See you at the next event on Monday: Festa della Repubblica!
