Mist in the mountains equals magic. Well it looks magical anyway.
What to do when you need a leg stretch and the sea is too big to get onto the beach……
A walk up the 10 mile valley – our “go to” walk. The mist hangs off the trees like she is hiding a million secrets – all just waiting to be discovered.
Waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls – another advantage of a walk up the 10 mile valley after rain – waterfalls galore. They are oozing out of everywhere.
Misty days are perfect days for the 10 mile – fill of atmosphere, the forest almost talks to you. The old coal mining relics sitting in the mist trying to tell their story.
It is very peaceful up here with the sound of the gushing water in the creek and the birds chirping. Don’t let the weather put you off from getting out and about – often it is the weather that adds to the dramatic landscape. Misty mountain magic – I love it.
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and about and exploring the region – named by Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2014 as one of the top 10 regions to visit in the world.
