I am a glacially slow writer. So while we all hold our breath and wait for me to transcribe my journey, here are some photographs:
The Milford Track: 4 days, 33.5 miles, 40 independent hikers,
56 avalanche paths, 9 swing bridges, 1154 meters above sea level
at Mackinnon Pass, 970 meters climbing down Mackinnon Pass,
0 mm of rain, 1 foot in front of the other, ∞ evil sandflies.
Wetland walk on the way to Clinton Hut.
Sphagnum Moss is super-natural! Super nature!
Making friends along the way. Bush Robin.
This is New Zealand.
Sunrise at Lake Mintaro.
Mackinnon Pass, mindblowingly beautiful.
