Ngatuhoa Stream

Ngatuhoa Stream

View from above. I came across this view only by accident. When following the stream, I encountered a canyon which I couldn’t see to the end and it sounded as if there were rapids around the corner. I decided to leave exploring that canyon until another time (probably next year). To get passed it, I had to climb up a steep hill and try to find a way through the dense bush. Quite high on the ridge I spotted the stream, while I was fortunate to find a goat trail, barely visible, to help me along. Getting down the bank was just as steep and I was grateful for the trees and scrubs providing support when needed.

I have long been a naturist, but never really shared my experiences. This blog covers some of those, mainly focused on one-week-a-year a holiday deep in the lower Kaimai Ranges, staying at the Ngatuhoa Lodge with a group of like-minded people. From there, we go hiking/tramping to various interesting features in the bush, with the Te Rere I Oturu waterfall one of the main features. On days when there is not a group hike, I go exploring the river bed of the Ngatuhoa Stream, and this year I managed to reach the point where it joined the Opuiaki river, which I followed back up to the intake dam of the hydro scheme, which was built in the '80's. From there it is easy to get back to the Lodge. I'm not really a writer and I don't know where this blog will take me, but I expect that there will be photos of other parts of New Zealand included. At times I might include photos that show (some) nudity, but is just part of what I do.
