WELL THATS WHAT THEY SAY.
TRAVELLING DOWN WEST COAST AT MOMENT.

WHILE TRAVELLING DOWN DECIDED TO TRY OUT SOME CAVE RAFTING, INVOLVED LOTS OF SLIDING THROUGH SMALL HOLES AND EVENTUALLY ENDED UP SITTING ON A RUBBER RING FLOATING THROUGH THE CAVE.

GOT TO SOME GREAT LOOKING ROCKS LOOK LIKE PANCAKES. AROUND THIS AREA DID ANOTHER HIKE CALLED THE INLAND PACK TRACK. NICE WALK BUT FULL OF DEEP MUD HAD A BAD TIME WHEN MUD EVENTUALLY GOT THE BETTER AND ROSE UP TO MY KNEES, WELL ALMOST. CROSSED A RIVER ABOUT THIRTY TIMES FEET WERE SAW AFTER.

PASSED THROUGH HOKITIKA AND DECIDED TO MAKE MY OWN PEICE OF NZ, DID SOME JADE CARVING LOOK AT PICS LOOKS REALLY NICE.
