Powerlines in smoke can flash over, start new fires. Power company will cut the juice and let everyone sweat if needs be

Naw, not on the mainland.
This is politics... they'll let things sizzle to a brown-out before cutting anything.
SA and VIC are the current national power-industry losers....

Gimmerburn Flats...from the Old Dunstan Rd.

Shows the northern end of the the eastern half of the Old Dunstan Rd....that little T-intersection in the center of the pic is the Upper Taieri-Paerau Rd., the Taieri Reservoir on the right.

Ranfurly and Naseby at the foot of the hills in the distance, Danseys Pass cutting across those and the Omarama Saddle tracks/ St. Bathans tucked in the top left of the shot.

I still clearly remember scooting along Upper Taieri-Paerau Rd and then the climb up the old Dunstan track from our 2012 trip.
