The West Coast


“Ride the Highway West Baby……..The West is the Best”

I don’t think Jim Morrison of the Doors had Hokitika in mind but what better lyrics could describe my passion for the West Coast. Just ignore the rest of the lyrics especially the F words and kill words. “This is the End” title is also appropriate as the Haast pass was closed . It was the end . That is when I decided to take the 900km detour backwards to Glenorchy. See “Worth the Detour”. No I didn’t have the car in reverse.
