    We took only a short one night detour up to Arthur's Pass while driving down the west coast, and it was well worth it. It turned out to be one of the most beautiful areas we visited in New Zealand, and exactly the beautiful outdoors I had come here seeking.

    spectacular Wilderness Lodge

    The braided Wimakairiri river

    Castle Hill, east of the pass, has
    lots of big rocks good for climbing

    The super-intelligent and mischievious Kea, a local high-country parrot

    These sheep sure have a nice pad
