Wilderness Days

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 3 August 2010 | Views [394]

The big draw for this New Zealand trip was getting outdoors and exploring their great tracks and hut system. Unfortunately, trying to see both North and South islands in 3 weeks, without your own transportation, that is a bit difficult. But finally, I did some tramping. Three days and two nights around Nelson Lake NP. There were some great views; alpine lakes, snow capped peaks, misty fog, swing bridges, crazy forests, streams, waterfalls, you name it. The best was, their huts. What I consider a luxury cabin, built with the view in mind, in the middle of the woods, all to myself. It was the best camping I have ever had. Walk 15km into the woods and up a mountain to sleep indoors, with matresses, a wood stove, dry wood in the shed, a sink with running water fosset, and a wonderful view to boot. Good times.
