Hopkins Valley and Huxley Valley Tracks, Lake Ohau

April 8, 2012

Hopkins Valley

Bruce and I ventured into the Hopkins Valley and then the Huxley Valley today. This is a tramping track at the end of Lake Ohau. It was a beautiful day again, and the landscape was spectacular. I also was particularly happy to see how close the birds were coming up to us. The bird is apparently a female Tomtit. It found us while we were having lunch and kept us company for quite a while.

We came across this stunning mossy waterfall. it was not very high, but was very wide, and the photo does not do a lot of justice to it.
