Room18 & 19 went to Highland Home Christian camp on the 24th of March. The first activity was the never ending Bushwalk.
Approaching the bush we were excited at our challenge. We needed to go single file into the bush because it was narrow which made it slippery and dangerous. It was also steep and there were lots of overhanging trunks and roots sticking out like traps.
After we got near the heart of the mossy damp and dull bush we became really nervous to see how high we were and to top it all off there was a big bush under us which we easily could fall on!
The bush was damp and sparkly and had moss dripping off into puddles. The bush had birds tweeting in the light breeze. The bird sounded pleasant, yet loud like music.
Brown and gooey grey mud was slopped all around the place making an unpleasant smell roam the air in a damp way.
As we walked slowly through the bush on the windy trail we could see many bright and dark coloured birds tweeting in their nests feeding their gorgeous babies worms and other insects. We could see evidence of possums and strangling vines killing trees as we walked past hollowed out branches and trees cracked with no leaves with slugs climbing up them.
It felt creepy in the bush because all of the trees looked like hands trying to grab us but we still enjoyed it. We recommend that if you are ever near Pohangina you drop in and give the fabulous bushwalk a go.
