Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you've never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground. . . . .  #judiththurman #newzealand #wanderer #trails #track #gopro #trails #tramping #hiking #adventureisoutthere #explore #discover #igphoto #photography #misfit #punk #friends #trip #instagood #kiwi #goodonya #aotearoa
A nice reminder that no obstacle is too challenging...

Happy Earth Day! Forever exploring & appreciating 🌏💙 “It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” ― David Attenborough . . . #keplertrack #earthday #newzealand #adventura #outdoors #hiking #wilderness #fiordland #adventure #beautifulnz #nature #bemorehuman #alpine #teanau

I was lucky enough to go for a trot on the #kepler track this weekend. Pretty nippy up above the bushline compared to the #bluemountains at this time of year and different, but equally stunning, scenery.  #run #offroad #track #trail #ultra #purenz #running #physio #training
Mammalian pests are a serious problem in New Zealand, and particularly Fiordland. Rabbits were originally introduced for fur and meat, but the population multiplied rapidly. So stouts, weasels, and ferrets (SWF) were introduced to control the rabbits. But the SWF instead preyed on the flightless birds that had never encountered predators.  To bring back the birds, New Zealand has said it will be SWF-free by 2050.  These traps for SWF are ubiquitous. This trap was modified to use a golf ball rather than an egg in an experiment to determine whether the animals will enter based on smell or color/size. The traps appear to have been a success - humans now hear and see many more birds, including the elusive kiwi.
Unfortunately my aim to finish the Kepler track had to be cut due to extreme weather conditions high in the mountains. Though I wish I could've continued, in this case I value my life more than the experience. However the adventure is not yet finish as there plenty of places in the southland to explore... On to the next . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #instapic #instagood #outdoors #vsco #vscocam #picoftheday #photooftheday #autumn #nature #keplertrack #teanau #instalike #mountains #valleys #fall #beautiful #travel #hiking #alpine #likeforlike #followforfollow
