When traveling independently and fishing through New Zealand's more remote areas... personal responsibility and safety MUST be considered.
ALWAYS check the weather forcast, take a suitable 4x4 vehicle, warm clothing, a PLB, have a safety plan, tell others know your plans, don't take dumb risks, expect absolutely zero cell phone reception and bring your common sense.
No fish is worth a broken leg.
When we entered the mountain, I had hoped it was molehill. When we came out the other side, all I saw was mountain in my rearview. I hope I never have to see you again because this molehill was the very mountain I feared, and you weren’t worth it.

Antisana is a towering stratovolcano that sits at the nucleus of a diverse ecological reserve a mere one hour from Equador's largest and capital city, Quito. Dormant since 1802, Antisana still features ancient lava flows, hot springs, and an emerald green crater lake. Today, the Antisana Ecological Reserve is home to a diverse ecosystem of nearly 500 bird species, 73 mammals and 61 amphibians and reptiles, from the majestic Andean Condor to the endangered Osornophryne toad. The ecological reserve plays an important role in educating the public on the importance of conservation, while the volcano is a visual reminder of the region's active past.

GARLAND FARM was the last home of the legendary Beatrix Farrand, who busted through glass ceilings to become one of the leading landscape architects of her time!
When she wanted to get educated, women weren’t allowed to study at Harvard or Columbia – but she convinced botany & engineering professors there to mentor her anyway. When she started her landscaping firm in 1895, women weren’t allowed to design public spaces. Beatrix worked her society connections (her aunt was Edith Wharton!!) and launched her career designing private gardens instead.
Farrand grew summering in Bar Harbor and some of her first clients were her family’s fancy neighbors. Her work was almost instantly renowned, and eventually she did get to design public gardens across the US, including at the WHITE HOUSE (…though her gardens there have been redone), the Morgan Library, and the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens. She also landscaped a bunch of college campuses, including Princeton, Yale, University of Chicago, Occidental College, and more.
She even got to design a public park! One of those early neighbors who threw upstart Beatrix a Bar Harbor garden became main Acadia funder John D. Rockefeller, who later hired Farrand to design all the Carriage Coad plantings you still see in the park today.
In her later years Farrand worked tirelessly to transform her family’s Bar Harbor summer estate, Reef Point, into her dream garden & botanic center. Her husband Max Farrand (who, not incidentally, was the first director of the Huntington Gardens) passed in 1945. Ten years later, she’d run out of funds.
Farrand was going to have to sell. Her chief horticulturist (what, you don’t have one?) Lewis Garland invited her to live with his family on their farm. Even though she’d worked so hard on her property -- Farrand decided she’d rather see Reef Point dismantled than have anyone enjoy the fruits of her labor. She ripped out the gardens, dismantled the house, supervised a full renovation of Garland’s house (so it was up to her exacting standards), and, in 1955, moved from one side of Bar Harbor to the other –
