Hitting the Gorge....

Training these hols for my Assisi walk will involve hitting the Manawatu Gorge numerous times in January. Took a first stab at it on the Tawa Loop the other day. Interesting to find that Strava works all the way...
 I got to see the statue of Whatonga for the first time- where the Tawa Loop track joins the main track, and the diversion down to the Big Slip. Whatonga is the ancestor (grandfather) of the local Rangitane people.

And here is this view of the Gorge from the first viewpoint- which looks over a small part of the big slipface from a few years back.

I'm now off to walk a longer section of the Gorge track. Catch you later, and Happy New Year!
