Cloudy day, the walk in was pleasant, forded the river at Suie, took the track up the hill just after Suie. There are "improvements" to these tracks related to a large wind factory on the north east side of Cooks Cairn. Blowy on the top so headed down the west side to get to the next track, this side of the hill covered in cloudberrys. Track back to Suie covered in clay and eroded by water at cross channels. Explored the bridge at Suie but was still closed and barriered off. Nice walk out.
