Trek 1154: This trek reached Templeton’s Crossing last night with the two girls pacing themselves well and it appear so fit. Today they will head to either Isurava Memorial or Isurava Village for their last night on the track. Keep going girls not too far now and you will be walking under the archway in Kokoda. Picture them today as they make their way to Eora Creek and then up to Alola Village before reaching Isurava.
