新西兰步道爬山日记:北岛Karamu Walkway

新西兰步道爬山日记: Karamu Walkway North and South, Waikato 21/06/2014 Perry 今天是个半阴天儿,Derek和我一早7点半就匆匆忙忙朝着Hamilton附近的Pirongia森林公园方向驶去。那里有一条我们从未涉足过的步道Karamu Walkway,Derek计划好后直到昨晚临睡前才告诉我。我听说明天的步道有20多公里长,冬天里走这么长的山路,不免有些担心。 这条步道包括南北两段,北段2.7公里和南段7.8公里,今天只有我们俩和一部车,所以我们只好走个来回了。步道的两头都有10几分钟的森林步道,其余则是走在私人牧场里。我想夏天我不会来这里走,牧场的步道虽有美丽无边的芊芊绿茵,但没有树木的遮掩,太晒了,冬季里如果无风无雨倒是个极好的选择。

新西兰步道爬山日记:Mt William Walkway 步道

新西兰步道爬山日记: Mt William Walkway步道 Perry 我这两天有点小感冒,因此我们决定这个周六走一个轻松些的步道。周六一早8点Derek就去参加了一树山公园Park Run俱乐部的五公里越野跑。他回来后我们俩吃完早餐,拿好鞋帽、手杖和背包,驶向奥克兰南边约50公里的 Mt William Walkway 步道。 连续几天来的雨水将这条步道浸得透透的,走在牧场草地里像是走在吸满泥水的海绵上,上山的路面泥泞不堪。原本这是一条极易行走的步道,今天却变得有些难度。正值冬日雨季,来此徒步者寥寥无几,此时只有我们俩行走在曲折静谧的林间小径,完全是俩人的世界。雨后的森林格外清爽,我们呼吸着清新湿润的空气,聆听着清脆悦耳的鸟鸣,享受着透过林间的缕缕阳光。

新西兰步道爬山日记: Okura Bush Walkway步道

新西兰步道爬山日记: Okura Bush Walkway步道 Perry 前几个周末爬山爬的太猛了,于是我跟Derek商量,我们来个故地重游去Okura Bush Walkway吧!达成一致后,今天我们就去了在奥克兰北岸的Okura Bush Walkway,做了一次轻松愉快的健行。今天的天气非常好,我们的心情也格外阳光。这条步道距我们家只有半小时的路程,早上我们不慌不忙地吃过早餐,一直拖到9点多才出门。
