“For this week’s challenge, share with us your own take on zigging and zagging. It can be a winding path, the Herringbone pattern on your coat, a scar: any jagged line that tells a story.”
To me Karangahake Gorge is one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. It’s a small forested area and understated in many ways. But when getting drenched with a solid rainfall it really comes into its own with a roaring river and simple but ruggedly appealing rock formations.
Tucked away in some forgotten corner of the gorge is Owharoa Falls. I think that for a small waterfall it is stunning. Located in a quiet, lonely spot, there is never anyone near it. Tributary waters zigzag and cascade glamorously over the rocks to the tranquil pool waiting below, before making their way to the roisterous gorge river.
