The first leg of the Milford Track is pretty gentle and that was the hike this day. Maybe I should say the second leg as the first leg is a boat ride.
The trail wanders through a thick forest.
Glade House is the fist stop for those on a guided tour. They are treated to hot meals and showers.
Beyond Glade House a swing bridge crosses the Clinton River.
There is a boardwalk with interpretive signs that winds through a bog.
Views of the incredible blue water of the Clinton River.
Then we arrived at Clinton house. This is the first stop for those not on a guided trip. There are two bunk rooms and a common kitchen where the through hikers can prepare there own meals.
This is where we had lunch and turned around. We had great weather but I guess it isn't always so.
New Zealand is a beautiful country and well worth the effort to get there.
