Field trip to Mt Egmont
The Auckland Branch of the Ent. Society's trip to Egmont in February this year was a very enjoyable and fruitful weekend. We stayed on the mountain at Konini Lodge near Dawson Falls (970 m). Early in the mornings we had some lovely views of the mountain from Konini Lodge before the mist came down. Dr Ken Fox was there to welcome our party of 19 on arrival (at 1:30 am in the morning) and was very helpful in advising us of collecting sites and lending some of his equipment.
