Young - Wilkin - East Matukituki via Gillespie and Rabbit Passes
Day 3 - Siberia Hut

For most of the day it rained - so we spent the day in and around the Siberia Hut.

Above - 2 planes land to take out a commercial party from Active New Zealand
- but the river was too high for them to cross over - so they had to
walk down to Kerin Forks to the jetboat. The night before they had
enjoyed a good meal - a nice vegetable curry and had given us their
left over food (which was quite a big wok full - thanks!).
