Wee adventure remembering the old OUTC times, by returning to The Clears, just past Tautuku Biv in the Catlins. With Max Olsen, Leon Billows and Anna Murdoch, just before Max embarked on his next big overseas adventure.
23rd -24th January 2021
The rata flower was everywhere
Anna on the trail
More rate caught on trees
The rate bedecked forest viewed from up a tree

Rata caught in bark
I might slowly be improving at this forest photography thing
The first of the The Clears
Camp cooking at the camping Clear
The rata is still very red
Sunsetting on interesting clouds
Max, Leon and Anna just chilling at camp
Sunset around the fire
What a great tea pot!
Anna getting cozy with her cup of tea - or more probably at this stage, wine.
Catching a spark
Max and his axe
The forest floor here is all the work of the very large tree at the back - it's a beautiful tree.
