NZS-1 Branch-ing Out!

NZ Spring Semester NZS-1 1-22-15 returned to the NZ Branch for the first time since the start of their course earlier this week. With just enough time to wash clothes, have showers and hang up their PFDs after their sea kayaking expedition, they were quickly underway again for their final semester section: hiking in Nelson Lakes National Park. Starting at the Branch Stream a couple of hour's drive south of the base, the group will hike over some of the ranges marking the northern end of the Southern Alps to an end destination at Lewis Pass on the Main Divide. The group paddled over 110 nautical miles during sea kayaking and were able to round Cape Jackson in the notoriously challenging Cook Strait. With such accomplishments to spur them on, they should enjoy the challenge of traversing NZ's high country.
