Winter in the Molesworth

Winter in the Molesworth

With a very brief weather window approaching and more snow on the way, the decision was made to get into the Molesworth Station quickly. We drove in pouring rain and out in the falling snow, feeling very fortunate to roam the hills during the two sunny, calm days in between. Again the Molesworth did not disappoint, with more rolling vistas sprinkled with snow and vast valleys to discover. 
Another phenomenon of the Molesworth are the old, broken, random fence lines along the highest ridges which must have been erected by manpower in the past. What a job…can’t have the stock wandering to far around the mountains…
We had the enjoyment of watching a inquisitive young 10 pointer check us out for about half an hour before disappearing over the ridge. From there is was a speedy slog out before the snowstorm hit.
