KanKaKei

Went for a great mission yesterday – drove up into the mountains, to the base station of the KanKaKei Gorge rope way/gondola. Stuck my GoPro camera to the outside of the window on the way up & shot some beautiful 2.7k@24fps footage (2.7k so I can crop/reframe it) as we travelled slowly up the gorge…

Then followed a walking track back down, passing through beautiful dense bush and a myriad of sounds – insects, crows….. and monkeys!

Walking along I suddenly saw a monkey & then realised it was the lead scout for a whole community on the move (maybe the same group I met on the road last week, not sure) – it took maybe five minutes for them to move across the path ahead of us, and slowly disappear into the bush. Just amazing to see their process – the lead scout and other males on the outer sides, with rear guard monkeys following at the back, protecting the younger monkeys…

It was a beautiful change to be up in the mountains, slightly cooler air & refreshing breeze, returning back down to Tonosho after sunset in a totally different mood than eight hours prior!
