Most of the roads that we travelled on the Forgotten World Highway
and Whanganui River Road were
paved sealed but there were a few places that
needed to be cleared from the slides occasionally.
An unexpected road block stopped us for about a half an hour while we
watched a helicopter helping with some logging.
They finally let us pass and there was a bit of dodging to do :)
Wild peahens and peacocks were an awesome sight to see in flight, but we
weren't in a position to capture them in the air.
