NEW ZEALAND | Wed, 18 Mar 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [354]

"Well, this is some nice, flat, forest walking," I muse. "Yeah, it can't last forever," Dad responded quickly, like we'd been having the same thoughts. We knew a mountain summit was in today's section of the 3-day, 30-kilometer hike we'd started, ... Read more >
