Back to the New Zealand Bush
I would like to share a note I got from Simon Nathan about "the Bush" some months back. The bush is in the heart of every New Zealander. Our souls and wairua are firmly planted in the bush whether you are Maori, Pakeha or Asian.
Te Ara has just launched the latest section. Called "The Bush", it contains 106 illustrated articles on landscapes, plants and animals of New Zealand as well as conservation and outdoor recreation. Just click on:
In particular I thought that you might be interested in the section called "Bush and Mountain Recreation", with articles on Mountaineering, Tramping,Walking Tracks etc. If you poke round, you will see that I managed to get one of the classic photos of Teichelmann, Newton and Graham in the mountaineering article.
