Nature’s refresher

Photo: Marcus King

It was a long hot slog up the Matakitaki River to Three Tarn Pass, but the wonderful display of flowering Aciphylla and Dolichoglottis plus the cooling effect of the many creek crossings meant the afternoon’s climb soon disappeared. On days like this, all the exertion is repaid in spades.
