Awatere River

The Awatere River looking back towards Blenheim. Not too many trees now, more grassland with a few willows growing along the river.


A bit further on into Molesworth - virtually no trees just grass and a few native matagouri bushes ( with big sharp spikes on their branches ! ) and introduced sweet briar ( roses ). Note the ever present power pylons.
