Driving down SH2 I had no idea where exactly we were headed. My friend Emily was visiting from Whangarei, and we had been intending to do the Cattle Ridge loop in the Tararuas but the weather forecast was looking terrible. Entering Petone we made a snap decision to head west over the Wainuiamata hill to the Ōrongorongo Valley.
