Beech forest, upper Makaroro track

On the second day we descended the steep track from Parks Peak to the Upper Makaroro hut. Hard on the legs, but it's over and done with quickly, and on a day like this the headwaters of the Makaroro are a beautiful place to relax. Shortly before reaching the river I stopped and looked out over the valley, the little orange hut below, the sunlight through the beech forest. We had the place to ourselves.
