Another 2012 Te Araroa Trail thru hiker, Annie Gustafson from Omaha, wrote:
We've walked over beaches ... we've walked through subtropical rain forest ... we've walked on every kind of road that exists ... and climbed over every kind of fence that exists ... We've walked over volcanoes, summited countless small peaks. We've walked up streams, in streams, and have crossed dozens of rivers ... We've walked up river valleys, down river valleys, over mountain passes. We've walked through cities and small villages. We've walked through botanical gardens and city parks. We've walked through tussock country and land of the speargrass. And every day, it is different.
