Best of 2016 – Tramping / hiking – New Zealand

A reasonably successful third year of tramping / hiking in New Zealand. Completed my longest and toughest tramp – five days for the Travers-Sabine Circuit, including Angelus Hut and an overnight detour to Blue Lake, completed the last of the Great Walks with a day and a half circuit of Lake Waikaremoana, just about stayed warm enough during a winter wander along the Greenstone Caples, and did a bunch of day walks from Queenstown, and from Auckland along the West Coast and out in the Hauraki Gulf.

Follow the links for details, here are a few photos from each trip.
