Christmas Flat Hut

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Mark Watson

This remote hut is located in the Karangarua Valley, Westland National Park, New Zealand. My three companions and I reached this tiny shelter after a 12 hour traverse over two mountain passes and were very glad to have a roof over our heads for the night. The image was shot in partial moonlight shortly after sunset.
