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!
