Dobel Reserve

As I measure my daily walks on google maps I havent been up at Dobel Reserve in years as the maps dont tell me the distance.  I however decided to guess my distance the other day and go up anyway.   At the foot of the hill there was a Maori totem pole.  

the hill in the background is Hospital Hill 

Taradale and surrounding surburbs 

The buildings outlined in red are the university campus - my older son studies here 

Linking with Unknown Mami


  1. What a lovely walk! Thanks for taking me along.

  2. A gorgeous, peaceful place to hike! The Maori pole really interests me.

  3. I'm interested in the second photo the most. Its pattern and color are attractive. Somehow, it evokes a feeling of deja vu, though I live in Japan and I have never traveled abroad.

  4. those fall colours are gorgeous.

    1. I prefer Summer however Ive loved photographing these colours :)

  5. When I was reading about "troubled times" I thought that it sounded like our times now... this totempole looks so modern! Thanks for your visit!
