I am possibly the only person in Auckland that would take a PLB on a one hour walk in the Waitakeres. I don’t consider myself risk adverse – I just like to assess and mitigate certain issues, before they ever occur.
We didn’t quite make it last time – so this weeks walk was the Arataki Nature Trail – a short walk that features an excellent opportunity to identify several of New Zealand’s most common trees right next to each other.
The long weekend seemed to be an ideal opportunity to head out with the little girl for another day walk.
Took my little girl out for our first bush walk. We had been out before – but only around Mt Albert and Western Springs – this was the first decent walk with here in the backpack.
We made a quick excursion into the Waitakere today to refresh the baits in the Possum traps.
Something we have gotten involved with recently is the helping maintain bait-lines in the ‘Ark in the Park’ in the Waitakeres.
Heaven on Earth? Quite possibly. And we got to spend 2 weeks there!
Heading right to the tip of the Coromandel.
A simple overnight stay in the Mataitai Forest.
