Enderby Island (continued)
Enderby was a spectacular place to hike. Only 500 people a year are permitted on the island. The ground is a layer of
spongy peat, much like we encountered in the Arctic. The vegetation ranged from grass to "old growth forests" which
were no more than 15 feet high. The variety of birds were spectacular and included Albatross (below).
|There were numerous parrots (right).
We also enjoyed several encounters with the yellow eyed penguin, the most rare and endangered of the penguins.
The variety of vegetation on such a small island
was simply astounding.
