  1. Te Matua Ngahere: the oldest Kauri left, over 2000 years old, 30 meters tall, and its trunk is 16 meters around! Posted 4 years ago
    1. I can feel its vibe from over here! That's one impressive giant. And you've done it much justice. Can't put my finger on it, but the scene just screams primal forest, old and wise. A classic! Posted 4 years ago
      1. Thanks, they are indeed fantastic trees. It was actually amazing, because our guide was Maori and he did a traditional chant to salute the tree as we arrived below it. It was magical. Posted 4 years ago
        1. Very Avatar-like, a spiritual connection with nature. Beautiful. Posted 4 years ago
