The New Zealand Bush Hike Experience

 When we got asked to go on a Bush hike " New Zealand style" on one of our last few days in the southern hemisphere, we knew to expect a good adventure. Turned out to be one of the most memorable hikes I've ever done.

We parked our cars at a beach, jumped in the back of a pick up truck, drove to the top of this big hill,  hiked into the woods for a half hour or so until we came to a river crossing.. Took a right and started off down the river.
   After a few minutes of walking down the knee deep river, we got to our first waterfall. Jump off, swim 20 feet and you're looking down your next one.

took us over 6 hours to walk down that river....there were some really sketchy sections with water falls you couldn't jump off.. everyone helped each other out the whole time

 and some really high falls. we stopped on the top of one water fall and had some lunch for a bit.

Thank you for this awesome memory.
