A tramper on Sunrise Ridge, Mt Owen (3rd of 3)

A tramper on Sunrise Ridge, Mt Owen

This lone tramper surveys the ridge that he has climbed to reach the top of the range. The track that he has followed runs along the ridge below into the bush down to the valley floor. New Zealand’s forests are especially well served by a network of tracks and huts. Some of these tracks follow old Māori trails while many others were made by the New Zealand Forest Service during the deer-culling days of the 1960s.
