Another road trip

This morning I set off before six am to travel to Waiouru.  It is about 150km and that should take on Highways about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  This journey is not on a normal highway and less than 4 hours is hooning.

It was raining.

My favourite mountain, Kaweka J.  1700m tall.

The rain was only just beginning.  This little rain cloud caught my attention.

The clay soil is not good for farming.  Fortunately trees grow here.

This area has recently been logged.  A piece of wood has become completely bleached by weather.

Radiata pine is a persistent plant and becomes a weed in some remoter parts of NZ,  like the slopes of the Kaweka Ranges.  This one shows its hardiness by growing on almost no soil at all.

This pant is not a Scotch Thistle, but it resembles it somewhat.  Its flower is at a very pretty stage.

What people have to do to make money from our beautiful country.

The little plants in this fotograf are small plants of Broom.  It has beautiful yellow flowers and is a legume, which means it fixes nitrogen into the soil.  Very useful I would think. This is one plant being sprayed.

Full grown broom.

Cheers for now.  Rest to follow.  Chris the Pipemaker.
