The Whangie- a gem of a short walk!

Route: The Whangie, Kilpatrick Hills

Date walked: 28/02/2016

Distance: 4.5km

I can't believe its been over 23 years since we walked The Whangie despite it being on our "doorstep"!

What a gem of a walk. I think i have been put off walking this recently due to the bog factor. However today was such a gorgeous sunny day with cold temperatures the ground was frozen/hard and no problems with any bogginess :D

Also incredibly, another sunny day at the weekend 8)
