Satan's spawn...

Woke to lots of rain, so the 5am fishing expedition was cancelled. We packed up and headed out to Te Anau, the gateway to Milford Sound and a refreshing break from Satan's spawn; the vicious sand-fly... We went to the visitor info, before finding a campsite and a nice hot shower. They are...

South of the South Island - Te Anau thru The Catlins

The south of the South Island...vistas extraordinaire! We saw absolutely stunning scenery as we walked tracks, drove back-roads and cruised inland waters in and around Te Anau, Milford Sound and the Catlins. The summer crowds had long deserted Te Anau, leaving its lakefront and...

Inclement weather

Te Anau is a sleepy little town on the shore of Lake Te Anau, with a permanent population of just 2500. But that more than doubles during high tourist season, because it's the entry point to Fiordland, home of the Milford Track and Milford Sound. Milford Sounds is one of a number of fiords along...

Doubtful Sound

So I just realized I could type in other cities besides "Dunedin" so you would all be able to see exactly where I was in the country when I tell me stories. Too bad I just realized that. This past weekend was my orientation group to Doubtful Sound. It was so wonderful to see everyone again...

Lots of gorgeous scenery

Lots of scenic pics from Milford Sound boat cruise ---> Franz Josef Glacier trek --> Abel Tasman National Park and various stop off points between these places.

Relaxing in Te Anau - Night 101

There was nothing on today’s agenda, save laundry and journal catchup, and that was fine with me. So long as I didn’t have to put on boots and 25lb pack it would be a good day. I explored the town of Te Anau, hung out at the beach, and grilled some delicious venison sausages for dinner. Deer...

Kepler Track, Day Three - Night 100

I left the Iris Burn hut around 7:30, with the sun shining beautifully on the mountain high above the valley. Today’s walk was primarily flat, following the Iris Burn River the entire way down to its mouth in at Lake Manapouri. Along the way I passed the Big Slip, an area where a massive...

Kepler Track, Day Two - Night 99

I awoke to a scattering of snores and groans. Combined with the howl of the wind and the pounding rain on the tin roof the whole auditory scene was a symphony of agony. The forecast had been for rain early, and rain it did. Except for a few brave (or foolish) souls, most of us waited it out...

Kepler Track, Day One - Night 98

I began the three day Kepler Track hike today. Arriving too late last night, I had to wait until the Department of Conservation office opened at 8:30am in order to pick up my hut permits. The office was stuffed with a large, older crowd of hikers milling around awaiting transport to the...

Milford Sound - Night 97

My bus for the Milford Sound left the Pinewood Resort at 8:00. We wove around town to various hostels and hotels, eventually filling the bus with daytrippers (not the Beatles’ kind). The Milford Sound is not all that far from Queenstown, as the crow flies, however jagged peaks, retreating...
