The Routeburn

The Routeburn was amazing. The forecast was horrible but we went anyway. The first day had a little rain but we were in the birch forests so it was too bad. The great thing about the rain was it made all the waterfalls gorgeous. The second day was chilly but very clear. When we crossed the saddle we had 360 degree views of the souther alps...Wow. The huts were great too. Fun people to talk to, plenty of coal to dry out our clothes and nice cooking areas (Stoves Provided). On the way out we even found a wheelbarrow that had been choppered in to make paths. Good fun and a very memorable trek!!!!
