Mt Owen, Kahurangi National Park

Looking North from the Summit of Mt Owen (1800m). The Kahurangi National Park extends as far as the eye can see in this view. The South face of Mt Patriarch is conspicuous in the middle distance on the right. The high marble mountains are dissected by 1000m+ deep valleys... hence the existence of deep cave systems.
