Arthur's Pass New Zealand, 1996

A beautiful little town set high up in the Southern Alps, on a pass between Greymouth and Christchurch. The forest is pretty but not terribly varied, but the fresh air and scenery more than make up for it.

Take the train up and you'll pass through some wonderful landscapes full of rivers and snowcapped mountains in the distance.

This was my first experience with Kea, native parrots who, like parrots everywhere are extremely intelligent and canny.

Also see New Zealand.
