Bush Walking

This is what we see when we drive to our local Black Gully Reserve and walk in the native bush, which is primarily silver beech forest. Native beeches aren’t deciduous so the bush looks much like this all year. The reserve is part of the Blue Mountain range, Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. Our visit, 15 May 2021.

There’s some old-fashioned cabins and this one on its own is pretty cute!

  1. My hubby’s sister lives in an area with beech woods and we used to find lots of chanterelle mushrooms there – very tasty fried in butter!

    1. Ferns are nice! We used to see many more fern species when we lived in a wetter place down south of here –but it’s nicer to *live* where it doesn’t rain so much!
