新西兰爬山日记:北岛Coromandel Walkway步道

新西兰爬山日记: 北岛Coromandel Walkway步道 2013年12月21号周六,晴,有风 Coromandel Walkway步道位于Coromandel半岛的Stony和Fletchers海湾之间,距Auckland大约215公里。在过去的两个月内没有一次晴朗的周末,今天终于等到了晴天的预报,于是一大早我、 Derek和Jason三人便迫不及待地驱车驶向目的地! 三个半小时后,经过最后一段颠簸曲折的土路后我们来到了Stony海湾的露营地,今晚我们将在这里"安营扎寨"。这是一个依山傍海的露营地,干净的绿地上用除草的方式划着一个个的方块,一块草地内可以搭一顶帐篷。今天露营的人寥寥无几,我们得以有机会挑选位置。在office登记后,我们选了Derek认为特别好的"一线海景"的两块草坪,说是第二天一睁眼,打开帐篷就可以看日出。我自豪地憧憬了一番次日看日出的情景,嗯,好有情趣呀!我们停好车便抓紧时间吃午饭,中午12:30背负重装上路了。

新西兰爬山日记:北岛Waiti Bay到Orere Point海边步道

新西兰爬山日记: 北岛Waiti Bay到Orere Point海边步道 2013年11月30号周六,阴,有风 今天我们Tramping group一行26人驱车一小时来到奥克兰东南部美丽的Kawakawa Bay,我们要从Waiti Bay沿海边经过5个沙滩和4个岩礁区走到Orere Point再原路返回。走海边步道阴天是最佳天气,如果是艳阳天,则会又晒又热。 来到海边才知道这里的风比都市里要大得多,风巨大的力量使云变化多端,奇形怪状。这里的海水在阳光和云的作用下呈现出浅淡的翡翠绿色,十分特别。
