Queen Charlotte Track

   
  If only I knew how easy this trail was. Being our first stretch on the Te Araroa, it felt like walking on the meridian of heaven and hell. On one side, sweaty, hot, humid days with endless wasps and sand flies. Hills that seemed to go straight up then right back down. It’s a rough break in, but there are no words to decribe the beauty.  
 If you’re thinking of hiking in New Zealand, this is a great trail with clean camp grounds. The water taxis that take you to Ships Cove will shuttle your gear, making it simple and more leisurely. We, of course, carried ours to build endurance for the upcoming Richmond Ranges. 
Watch out for Wekas! They want to steal your lunch!
