Homer Gertrude Conservation Trip

20 November 2020 - David Cary

I am just back from a trip to the Homer Saddle and Gertrude Valley to check the Alpine Clubs DOC200 and Trapinator traps.

I started around 9 am on the 19th, with the Gertrude Valley, with a personal side trip to the saddle after checking the last trap, arriving back sometime after 3 pm. In the evening I did the Possum line.

This morning, the 20th, I went up the Homer line in cloudy and fortuitously dry weather, leaving for home after an early lunch before 12 noon.

It is an absolutely phenomenal time to visit alpine Fiordland with the Mount Cook Daisy’s out in full bloom and warm long days.
