Sir Stanely Whitehead Track

Always looking for (and finding) places that we’ve never been before. Today: The track connecting the centre of New Zealand on Botanical Hill with the Founder’s Park on Atawhai Drive.

First few hundred metres are steep, some stairs involved. But as soon as the forest is behind you, the city views are opening up.
The photographer, caught in action.
Some grazing sheep. How many years from now will it take until this is all residential area…
Enjoying the grass until it lasts.
Lunch break. Got some goodies from the market to feast upon.
Nelson downtown.
Rolling hills, and the further we go, also more harbour and seagulls.
From here you can almost see the Kina cliffs.
In total, I’d say this is the most underrated city walk so far. Looking forward seeing this in spring.
