Return to the world below...

Dave returns to Aspiring hut (just visible, upper right) and the really pretty Matukituki valley. After a week in a frigid, almost lifeless, landscape of white snow and black rock, it's nice to get back to the vibrant colours and smells of the valley! Greens, browns, yellows and purples, the scents of flowers, wet wood and grass. Even sheep smell OK (for an hour or so!).
