A delightful day was spent at Lake Waikare-iti, three miles north-east from Lake Waikare-moana. It is a solitary but captivating spot, about 2,600ft. above sea level. We passed over a well defined track through an old rimu and rata forest, where were viewed the two falls—Papa-o-korito and the lower Aniwaniwa Falls, a 60ft. drop of foaming water. On this charming lake there are about seven small unexplored isles covered with dense forest to the waters edge, and on one of the islands is to be seen another tiny lake.
