Recently we had the pleasure and joy to go and visit our friends Niki and Ewan at their new home and perma-culture adventure Muntanui. Situated in the Nelson Lakes area near St-Arnaud, the Rainbow ski-field and Lake Rotoiti around the corner there is plenty to see and do.
What an amazing place and what great people. I suggest you go and read about their adventure here >>>. Besides having a great time catching up, it was great to have a walk through the native bush that covers part of their land. In this time of the year the colors were just amazing with the mosses growing on the old trees providing for amazing bright greens, the views and the birds, that could be heard all along the walk. The forest is a great place to walk in any event but this native bush had such a different atmosphere, the old trees, the mosses and fungus, the ferns covering the floor. Amazing to walk through a part of New Zealand’s natural history.
