The Pinnacles

Ngawi

Wellington/Wairarapa

Hazel , 12

Rock, rivers, streams and deadly round rocks.

A two hour hike up the Pinnacles and I almost didn't come down.

It was around 20 degrees. I was so hot I needed to sit down. We had left Mum and my sister behind, so it was just me, Dad and Cooper.

They sat down so I did too, but I was so tired I just flopped back and I didn't know what hit me. Before I knew it I was looking up at the pale, blue sky, was this going to be my last sight?

No it wasn't, I smashed my head on a deadly flat rock. I was on my dad's back before I knew it then I slept....
