Holden | by SarahPetersPhotography

After a 2 hr boat trip we then made our way up the 11 mile track to the village of Holden that sits at 3200ft high up in the wilderness. Holden was once a mining village supporting the workers who mined the nearby copper mine. It is now a Lutheran retreat with visitors from around the world and hikers and walkers seeking that last bit of wilderness. Adam and his colleagues were there to talk about the mine remediation and I got to go along and sample the views and the relaxing atmosphere, it was a very welcoming and friendly and beautiful place. No phone signal, no tv, no internet just fresh air and amazing scenery and wildlife.
