Travelling from Palmeston to Ranfurly, then on to Alexandra I decided to call in at some of the “viewing” spots that are located along the way. When at last I stopped, I gathered some gear from the back of the car and examined my surroundings. Hunched beneath the misty rain, I had a look around. As far as I could see, there were nothing but low clouds with the odd shaft of light peeking through. Later, content with what I’d seen, I went off back to the car.
Puketapu with Storm Clouds – Buy
There’s a stunning view from the top of Puketapu Hill which gives you a 360 degree view over the Palmerston township, rolling farmland down the Shag Valley and out to sea. It’s also a spectacular place to be if a view storm clouds start to roll in.
