New Zealand, Two Thumbs photos

These are the photos on my first trip up the Rangitata Gorge road in a rental car on November 30, 1996. The goal was to get as close as possible to the Two Thumbs. I ended at Mesopotamia station. The pictures after crossing the river end at Erewhon station, where a stream stopped me from going all the way for a view of the Thumbs.

Later I spent two weeks stalking the thumbs, based at Rangitata Rafts lodge.
Finally, I flew over the Thumbs.
