Thoughts and travels of Patrick Lam

Mount Hopeless attempt, August 25-27, 2023

We carried mountaineering gear 50km on a long weekend and had a nice walk in the fluffy snow, but no summit.

Atene Skyline Track, June 17, 2023

Atene Skyline day hike in Whanganui National Park. A bit faster than predicted time. Well-formed if somewhat steep track. Excellent undercast views. Also, Bushy Park near Whanganui.

Trip Report: Queen Charlotte Track, October 22-27 2022

Post-punted-paper-deadline trip to Queen Charlotte, plus a stay in Anakiwa. Occasional good views, a bit on the long side.

Trip Report: Banks Peninsula Track, October 3-4 2022

Back at Akaroa for the Banks Peninsula Track with great views of the hilly coast.
