Abel Tasman Coast Track


The Abel Tasman Coast Track is a totally awesome hike that you should see at least part of on your next trip to New Zealand. I was able to hike part of it in January and the rest of it in February (about 5 days on it, total), and take 3 water taxis around the area to really see the remote spots (that you can't even get to by hiking).

In addition to all the cool seals, fish, and birds that were alive, we (unfortunately) saw a number of dead ones, including some really cute, really make-tough-guys-shed-a-tear kind of dead penguins. I figured I shouldn't post a picture of that here, though.


ps. It was really green in the rainforest...
