The Criffel Range, Central Otago, New Zealand

The historic Criffel gold diggings are thought to be the highest in New Zealand. And host a geological landscape known as the peneplain. Getting enough water to work the claims was always a big challenge. On many a Sunday miners would descend/walk down to Luggate township (on the right) to play cricket for the day. And then walk back! That’d be a two day journey in the psyche of our modern society. For those viewers a bit lost in the landscape, here we’re looking out at Wanaka and Hawea. Respectively left and right.
