Mount Patriach and the Red Hills, along the Wairau Valley, Blenh

A beautiful sunrise along the Wairau Valley, Mount Patriarch and the Red Hills, with the first rays of sun striking the mountains. Mount Patriarch peak is 1656 m high, overlooking Wairau Valley in Mount Richmond Forest Park. The route to the summit is challenging, though a 4WD forestry road provides foot and MTB access to within short distance of it.
