Aspiring national park from the air

shows the area of Cascade saddle from the north, then moves to the area around mt aspiring, then on to the side valleys of the Makarora including the Young River and the lake that was formed by a big slip a few years ago..
from the land of the long white clouds...

Taken from inside the cabin of a commercial airline... Boing!

Wayne, why do you always tempt us? It all looks so doable from the air until one lands in the midst of it.
Just move it!

The one hour chopper rides out of Makarora are fantastic.
You land in a couple of spots up high and fly around Aspiring itself.
I did it on a beautiful day.
It doesn't get much better than that.
