Green Summer trees line the banks of the longest river in New Zealand, at 264 miles long. It begins it journey from the huge Lake Taupo, tumbles over the Huka Falls, and wenders its way through farming country to the West Coast at Port Waikato, and empties into the Tasman Sea. Eight power stations are dotted along its wake. It's Maori name, Waikato, means flowing water.

A cave can be seen on this opposite bank.

    A wonderful image, Sue! For it to be so late in the season, the foliage is really green! There sure is a lot of clarity to the water.
