Video: Peak To Peak On New Zealand's North And South Islands
Last November I wrote a piece about an ambitious human-powered expedition called Peak to Peak 2013. It featured two adventurers, Kiwi Grant Rawlinson and Aussie Alan Silva, who were attempting to climb the highest mountain on both the North and South Islands, while also traveling between those two peaks completely under their own power. Grand and Alan started the expedition with a successful summit of Mt Ruapehu on the North island and then hiked, paddled, and cycled their way to Mt Cook (aka Aoraki) on the South Island. It was quite the adventure all around and the video below chronicles their journey nicely. The amazing New Zealand landscapes certainly don't hurt either!
