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。


新西兰步道爬山日记: Coromandel半岛Karaka步道到Crosbies Hut到Te Puru Creek步道

新西兰步道爬山日记: 北岛Coromandel半岛Thames小镇附近,Karaka步道到Crosbies小木屋到Te Puru Creek步道,01/06/2014 星期日 Perry 初冬的早上,何止是一丝寒意,出门时汽车里的温度计显示摄氏6度。我、Derek、娜娜和Jason四人汇合后,8点10分兴致勃勃地奔赴奥克兰以东113公里的一个小镇Thames。Derek之前计划的这条步道没有找到更详细的信息,如总长度和路况等,凭着经验和感觉,他与Jason商量后决定迎接这个挑战。天气预报说Thames今天阴天,傍晚时分有雨。冬天在林子里爬山,这样的天气不太理想。
