South Island Last Days

Hiked around the Hokitika Gorge. Beautiful baby blue shade of water and fern filled forests. Watched our final sunset from Hokitika in the West Coast.  Then traveled over Arthur’s Pass and saw lots of Rata trees in full bloom (the Kiwi Christmas tree). Hiked amongst the huge boulders at Castle Hill before returning to Christchurch for flight home.  Amazing trip exploring the South Island of New Zealand!
