Rocky Roxburgh

Today in the late afternoon we were in Roxburgh and stopped at a reserve to look at some trees, then decided to climb a nearby hillside to see what lay at the top. Rocks! Roxburgh is a bustling little town in the south of Central Otago, a district renowned for dry, rugged, rocky landscapes. New Zealand. ~autumn here!

The rocks are part of the extensive golf course. There were no golfers so we weren’t in any danger of ricocheting golf balls!

  1. Roxburgh seems an apt name! The rocks make for a very striking landscape – and probably an excellent hazard for the golf course.

  2. I learned to love rugged, rocky landscapes when I lived in southern Arizona for three years when I was in the Army. I love the different color variations and patterns in the rocks there.

  3. When I read ” we were in Roxburgh and stopped at a reserve to look at some trees, then decided to climb…” I was sure I was about to see some photos of you climbing trees! No matter. The rocks are attractive, too, and you still got your climb.

    1. Hahaha .. I never was a good tree climber! I noticed some trees had bunches of something among the foliage and we stopped to see what they were. They were bunches or clusters of propellor-shaped seedheads. Interesting. Weren’t too sure about the identity of the trees though.
