There’s a bit of a thing going on with the road up to the summit of Mt Wellington. In Winter it’s closed more often than not at night for a whole variety of reasons AKA public liability. There is an upside though. With the road closed to the massive amount of tourist traffic it’s still possible to have the mountain all to yourself. How? Just scooch around the vehicle barriers on foot… or bike 🙂
With a good forecast on the cards I headed up the mountain on my ebike in the wee hours of the morning and enjoyed a couple of hours of pure bliss. Calm, clear conditions. Fresh snow, clouds in the valley. And not another person to be seen.
Just kunanyi and me!
