    How'd you get so close to that bird! Nice VK+!

    Haha we learned that that bird is a kea. They are really smart and hang out at the top of peaks, where hikers pause for a snack while enjoying the view. The kea pick up any scraps and are not shy about trying to get into your backpack in search of trail mix :) The photo doesn't show it, but when they spread their wings, their colorful feathers are dazzling! Also, the trail is so steep that Strava screwed up its moving time estimate :)

    Haha! Yeah that 4:11 downhill mile split was suspect! I guess the bold nature of the kea explains the close pics, suppose kiwi's view them as a bit of a pest - the majestical pigeon!
