Christchurch gets away with bad weather a lot. While the rest of the South Island of New Zealand is covered in rain, Christchurch enjoyed a very warm and sunny weekend. On Saturday, Native Kiwi and I walked up Mt Herbert and were treated by these gorgeous views.

We walked up from Orton Bradley Park and down to Diamond Harbour. The way up from Orton Bradley Park is not well maintained anymore and VERY over grown with thistles and stinging nettles. Some bush bashing are involved and gaiters are definitely good companions on this trip.
