This morning I got up early and headed out for a walk around and through Mohi Bush.
On the road to Mohi Bush, you get some stunning views over Hawkes Bay. This foto looks towards the west. The far blue line is the tops of the Ruahine Ranges.
Part of the Maraekakaho stream has bush on either side, as shown here.
This rooster feels at home here, but I don't think he is a wild bird. He belongs to, or is fed by a local.
The hills along Maraekakaho road are of limestone. This kind of rock has wonderful outcrops, a few of which are shown here.
The bush shown here is original bush. A lot of bush was cut down to make the green pastures.
This limestone outcrop is just by the entrance to the Mohi Bush.
Taken from the standpoint as the limestone outcrop. The beginning of the walk through the Mohi Bush.
Kaharunaki is the peak in the distance. It reaches 600m at its highest point. We are not quite 300m here.
There is a very nice information board at the start of the walk. It tells us of some of the trees a d [bird] wildlife.
The map of the reserve. The arrow says "go right". I went left.
Here I am going to stop, and post the further pictures tomorrow.
