The Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Chapter 11.

 

14a

Honey toned, orange tipped, butter yellow, glowing green lowlands frame towering craggy capped mountains.   Tinkly cascades flow into luminous rivers surrounded by lush fern fronded forests splashed with amber mosses and vibrant orange fungi.   It is hard to believe that anyone would want to despoil this area , tear down ancient trees for logging and then flood the damaged land with water and create  a dam.  But they did.    Many people fought for the forest and rivers right to survive intact, the world heard about it and joined in and eventually it was classified as a World Heritage listed park.

This  is an outstanding area of natural beauty and  the pictures speak volumes – more than I can ever articulate
