Up on the tops


When I first saw this photo of Dad-I made the comment that he looked like he was on the moon!

Well after being lucky enough to get up there-I can tell you that it's pretty close to the moon-thats how it felt.


This photo is taken on top of the Hawkdun Range,where we stopped
while on out trip over Otematata Station.

In the centre of the photo you can just see the Falls Dam,so I think we are looking towards St Bathans


This photo shows the haze over the sky line-there were fires over towards Queenstown during Easter


This photo is looking right from on top of the Hawkdun Range.
On the right in the photo you can just see Mt Aspiring.The views were amazing.

In all the photos you can see the rock on the ground-which was quite hard to walk on.
Apparently it is hard on the pads of the dogs feet if they are not used to it and the horses need shoeing earlier if they have been mustering up here.

What a great trip it was-and I loved seeing the country where Dad and many others used to muster.

Thats all for now,

More photos shortly
