Postcards from the edge

Went for a lunchtime hike up Maungawhau/Mt Eden the other day. Construction of a new walkway around the crater rim is well underway.

It looks nice (for a walkway), and I’m sure it will improve the safety and accessibility of this popular spot while also reducing the degradation that comes from lots of people tromping around on a narrow and often muddy trail. But at the same time there’s a small piece of me that wonders about smoothing too many of the rough edges.
