The Adventure of a Lifetime

Pat Martin
Grand Junction, Colo.

As a horseperson with a lifelong desire to visit New Zealand, how could I pass up a chance to participate in an 8-day horseback trek through that spectacular country? This past March that’s exactly what I was fortunate enough to do. For me it was the adventure of a lifetime.

New Zealand, called “the land of the long white cloud” by the indigenous Maori people, consists of a North Island and a South Island lying off the southeast coast of Australia. It has the most diverse scenery and natural features of any place of equal size on earth. I like to think God took all his leftovers from creating the world and tossed them together to make New Zealand. There are snow-capped peaks, glaciers, and glacial rivers and lakes, lush plains, geo-thermal features resembling Yellowstone Park, white sand beaches with dolphins playing in the waves, deer and elk, penguins and whales, wallabies, and, of course, kiwis. This unique national bird resembles a fuzzy, brown grapefruit with two legs and a long, skinny bill, and, curiously enough, the citizenry have adopted its name as their own.
