We did the Otter Trail! It is definitely something taht everybody should try and do once in their life. WOW. It was truly beautiful. The scenary everchanging...Wild coast like beaches, completely isolated from the outside world (for 4 days), waves crashing, jagged rocks and then you'd step into the shelter of the forests, loerie's calling and water trickling. Time to clear your mind.
Awesome views and nature aside, it was (for me) a trip/trail of endurance and determination. Alot of yoga, streching and keeping a positive attitude assisted in making it a very rewarding experience. There were many steep climbs, stiff legs, rock climbing, river crossings, game drinking, energy boosting and creative culinary skills. And if you are lucky.. otter spotting. I wasn't one of the lucky ones as I tended to be at the back of the pack and also didn't fancy leaving my warm sleeping bag in the mornings to sit by the rivers in anticipation of maybe seeing one. But as a group we saw otters on numerous occasions which we've been told is quite lucky!
Have a look at picasa for some more of the pics....
