Here is an example of some of the shots that I got on this trip. Shown is the pillow button grass that was all around us while we camped at the New Pelion Hut and vicinity of our camp 2 site. As often is the case, foliage in the bush appears to be soft, but is harsh when you actually encounter it. These fluffy tufts of grass are high and dense with rough leaves that can scratch you up pretty well. Difficult to walk across, a field of pillow button grass is as challenging as walking up an small incline of rocks. I took this shot early on Feb 19th while the mist was beginning to clear from the mountains in the distance around 7:30 AM.

Half way up the mountain, we took a water break where the boundary of the temperate rainforest ended and the more barren and rocky part of the mountain began. I had such a fantastic time with this crew. I hope to walk again with them some day soon.
