Vandaag naar Punakaiki gereden ongeveer 240 Km.
Onderweg 2 tracks gelopen in de buurt van het dorp.
De Pancake Rocks and Blowholes zijn daar erg mooi.
Deze rotsformaties zijn ontstaan door erosie van water en wind.
Diverse modellen gefotografeerd.
Op een rots was een stern zijn jong aan het voeren.
Morgen gaan we naar het oosten.

This was another area where there had been a lot of damage by the April storm, but we’d been told that they’d finished clearing the track the previous week. It’s a very steep trail, ascending 1000m in a few kilometers, so we warmed up rapidly as we climbed. The sun hadn’t risen over the hill ...
... further down the road. We knew the caves would be quite a trek to reach but we were still surprised! After parking up we started the walk which saw us having to wade through two river crossings and climbing/scrambling again through thick bush to get up the side of the gorge to the cave entrance. Luckily the DOC put out these little orange markers to point out the way, so it’s very difficult to get lost even though there is no path to speak ...
