Off we go!Off we go!Off we go!

Well groom paths mean good footbridges - I am not brave!
Although quite well known in the hiking community, for me Buller Pass was a destination taken on faith. We had a beautiful day, full of sunshine, passing through tall birch forests. The purity of the mountain air is invigorating to the body and relaxing to the mind. ! I walked with some of the participants who pause to look at the little plants and chat during a welcome water breaks. Thanks to some knowledgeable companions, this became my opportunity to really learn the names of the wildflowers. Photographs help immeasurably, as you will see in this post.
