Today’s photo of the week celebrates World Rivers Day.
World Rivers Day is held on the last Sunday of September and is a day to recognise the importance of rivers all around the world. It is a chance to reflect on the environmental, economic, recreational and cultural benefits that rivers provide.
“Rivers are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense.”
~ Mark Angelo
Andrea Schaffer captured this photo along Rob Roy Track. It shows a stream as it flows down from a glacier, through Mount Aspiring National Park, and down to meet the West Matukituki River.
