Tramping the Milford Track, day 2

There’s no describing it, it’s just shear beauty. I look at these photos with heavy heart wishing this day to return. Mitsy and I got up with blue still diffused by the mist, sun was hiding behind the sharp peaks to our East. We hiked through this mist for quite some time and it made the track this day magical.

In efforts to prevent tracking in of dirt, we all left our boots at the door each night at the hut, this is at Mintaro hut.
