monkeysh1ne

Great fan of the outdoors especially my backyard range - the 'Tararuas' (Tararua Forest Park). Have tramped fairly extensively in the North Island and some of the top of the South Isl.

Kaitoke to Greytown via Tutuwai & Mt.Reeves, Tararua Forest Park

A two day jaunt to clear the head and get a little much needed exercise. Oh and to enjoy some fine weather in my favourite back yard wilderness =)   More ▶︎
