Gillespie, Gandalf & Rain:

Started up Gillespie Pass Circuit, we took the easy option, so got a jetboat from Makarore, and cut over an hour off the day, saved wading a potentially deep and hairy river.
Beautiful beech forest, with the usual abundance of ferns and fungi. I'm always fascinated by the variety of fungi, these are brilliant, bright violet blobs, a blue-grey one just the shape of Gandalf's hat and a tiny delicate one only 5mm diameter.
Oh, and it poured most of the seven hours it took to get to the hut, but too warm & humid for waterproofs!
