Unplanned rest day.
I had expected the section between Pelorus River and St Arnaud to take 7 to 8 days but found myself ahead of schedule and arriving in St Arnaud only after 6 days. My natural walking pace is fairly quick and I’m certainly not rushing through the trail, still I was surprised to get into town in 6 days, particularly given that one day in the mountains was really just a half day with a rainy start. So ahead of schedule and after a hard 35km yesterday I decided to take a day off and regroup. I have a food parcel here that I sent ahead to the Alpine Lodge and I get a chance to do some laundry and eat some delicious food.
