Hiking in New Zealand’s Mt Aspiring National Park

February 10, 2007

A three day high summer trek up the Wilkin Valley in the summer with friends, was an opportunity for some sculptures. Surrounded by alpine peaks the landscape becomes extraordinary when the ice twins Mts castor and Pollux come into view and we headed up above the bushline to Lake Diana and Lake Lucida to camp near the terminal moraine. Out of necessity the sculptures were quickly created with more inspiration than time but were a way to intimately engage with the landscape that we passed through.
