Bobs Hut | Nelson Lakes National Park

Classic SF70 hut, of the original NZ Forest Service variety. Not quite sure why they felt an 8 bunker was appropriate here because it’s not in a high use area. Handy when popping over Three Tarns Pass from the Lewis Pass.

There is a photo of Bob on the wall and his grave outside …
