    Summer in the South Island

    Recently hiked the Milford Track near Queenstown. 35 miles (55 km) of incredible scenery over four days. The group included 50 adventurers from several different countries and four outstanding guides who encouraged us all the way to the finish. Conditions were warm and sunny at the lower elevations (where there were dense forests), but there was some rain and strong wind at the top of the ridge (3300 ft/1000 m). Snow melt created an amazing variety of waterfalls on many of the rock faces. Challenging climbs in some areas, but rewarded with great views. Highlight was a boat cruise through Milford Sound with an impressive Mitre Peak (5551 ft/1692 m) rising in the distance.
