NZ: hike to Swampy Summit (Leith Saddle Track)

After a few days of rain, I saw the sun coming in through the window, and off I went to Swampy Summit.  Here are a few photos:

This is no joke - when I got to the ridge, the wind was blasting at about 40 mph:


Snow in the higher mountains - this was apparently a very big and unseasonable storm for this time of year:


Looking down on Dunedin:




There's the top:



Like I said, it was a little windy up there:
