Curious Kea

Curious kea on Avalanche Peak tramp. Photo: Gary Macpherson

This photo was taken on a Queens Birthday trip over Avalanche Peak via Scott’s Track into the Crow Valley for an overnighter at Crow Hut. On the way up the kea took an interest in our activities, as I did in their crazy ways.
