Easter at Wheeler Hut

*** First up, the disclaimer… I’m finally updating here after months of no posts. I’ve been dealing with some pretty nasty fatigue issues for most of this year, which have turned out to be related to a reactivation of mono/glandular fever in my system.

Asulkan hut trip

We were lucky enough to be invited along on another TanyaTrip™, when another family had to pull out.

So annoyed he refused to so much as hug me for the rest of the day. On the plus side, he really wants to have more sleepovers now. We’d been invited on an adults only trip to Elk Lakes Cabin, with everyone … Continue reading Elk Pass

Amazing Elizabeth Parker hut expedition

We last spent a winter night up at Elizabeth Parker hut when the Moosling was just seven months old – it was his first hut trip. This time it was three families, each with one child, who set off from the trailhead. Only having one child each does certainly make it easier. The two wee ones travelled in Chariots, while the Moosling was supposed to … Continue reading Amazing Elizabeth Parker hut expedition
