<b>Colour version.</b> Canoeing on Mangakino Stream off Lake Maraetai, Mangakino, New Zealand. Completed in the 1970s the dam, that formed Lake Maraetai behind it, flooded the area including the lower reaches of Mangakino Stream. This resulted in an easily navigated waterway with deep water and amazing steep and tall rhyolite rock cliffs on either side. <a href="http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/onblack.php?id=3286361620&size=large" rel="nofollow">View On Black</a>
In one section ahead the native bush resounded to the calls of the native Tui , Bellbird, Fantail and Kingfisher. Drifting along in the canoe was like being in heaven.
I grew up in the village you see in the top right of this photo.
I want to buy this, but it's US$600.
