Stunning clouds this afternoon out at Pukemokemoke. Also did my fastest ever circuit and then managed 2 more!
The working bee crew were out in force and had dosed the wasp nests so hopefully won’t be stung again. One day I will get to a working bee and give back to this amazing reserve that we have had so much joy from. I was talking to one of the volunteers who was telling me he had been working up there for 20 years. When he first started it was overrun with weeds, stoats, rats and possums. They are now all eradicated and the place is planted with native trees and the birdsong is back.
Another walk when we dodged the rain! The light on the Toetoe was beautiful though the photo doesn’t really show the purple tinge to the fronds. I love getting up high!
Another early morning out at Pukemokmoke. What a different day! Yesterday was just cloudy. Today there was the most amazing temperature inversion. Driving out the mist was thick but the sun shone in shafts through the trees. At the trig I looked out over a sea of mist above which the hills poked their heads.
Oxfam trailwalk has snook up on us – only 4 weeks to go! Hill training today at Pukemokmoke…
After a busy week travelling around the Waikato and Bay of Plenty it was great to get out in the sunshine on to of a hill this morning!
This afternoon I finally got round to painting the bathroom!
