Days 8-10: Routeburn track, 2 nights, 3 days.

Some pics from the Routeburn track, 2 nights in huts, 3 days hiking. Night before at a place called Kinloch, on a lake. YHA and nice place to get ready for the hike. Had to catch a helicopter for the middle bit of the hike over the pass, 5 minutes on a helicopter. But meant I didn’t have to turn around and did most of the hike. All up about 40 people did the helicopter jump, 5 people per trip. But a long day 2 for me. Didn’t get to the hut till 7pm, but had it all to myself. The others stopped at the earlier hut, MacKenzie hut. Must admit was getting a little tired towards the end.

The final day was a relatively easy hour’s walk mostly down to the carpark at ‘The Divide’.
