After a big snow event, it's almost an imperative for me to visit the dire beauty of Wairio. The Takitimu Mountains are so vivid from there.
Of course there are sheep too.
Wairio is also pylon country but they bring a kind of beauty of their own. This is the Wairio Methodist Church. I thought I could get a picture of the mountains and the church but it's just not situated that way. This poor church is deterioting more every year.
