Trekking in New Zealand

New Zealand Track

Clouds bolt across blue skies,
Alder trees shimmer in the wind,
Twisting, the track follows the long fiords of Te Anou.

Fern filled beech forests
-----------------escallop edges of aquamarine rivulets
------------------------------------snaking in the red
--------------------------tufted meadows.

Ridge lines of Red Beech cling to steep walls rising from the Sound.

Massive water falls skim the tops of
--------------------hanging valleys,
------- sweep over towering glacial faces, and
---- ----------------------------------plunge,
------ ---------- ------------ -----------raucous
-------- ---------- ------------ over ferocious walls
