New Zealand asks travelers to help protect the environment

New Zealand, an awe inspiring country, and has a dear place in my heart. I traveled there with my dear friends Greg and Terry in 2011. We did a few treks, including the infamous Milford Sound (39 miles in 3 days, varying altitudes, a dozen waterfalls, etc.), and afterwards restored our energy at the Abel Tasiman National Park, below. A very precious place. Six years later, I returned with my son for a mother-son expedition and hiked the 19K trail through Vouldor - the land of volcanos as depicted in the Lord of the Rings. Amazing experiences "hoofing" through this beautiful country. Happy to hear it will continue to preserve the environment. Highly rec'd NZ as a destination for your travels.
