Alpine Plants of Mt Lyford,

Trip to Mt Lyford December 2014 and 1 January 2015.

We were lucky enough to be taken up the water supply valley and climb onto the rock scree to find many of these plants. 

Mt Lyford is on the border between Canterbury and Marlborough Provinces.

I will write some more about the individual plants and post it on this blog.
