Description

One watercolour showing five men walking through a gap in the bush. Young sent the following caption with the painting:
“No. 2 shows our party walking along a backwater of the Haast River, the main body being on the left, and our thinking the river flowed through the tremendous gorge ahead; instead of which it turned sharp to the right round the right hand hill, and soon gave us a view of the distant ocean."
