ROUTEBURN TRACK DAY 1
ROUTEBURN TRACK Day One
What a marvelous adventure, The Routeburn Track in New Zealand, one of the world’s very best treks. Beautiful flowers, amazing views, we were so fortunate with perfect weather the first two days.
The Routeburn, one of New Zealand’s nine “Great Walks,” is less crowded than its world-famous neighbor, the Milford Track, and the scenic payoffs along the Routeburn’s alpine stretches far surpass those of the lower, often cloudier Milford. The Routeburn’s easily traveled route connects two of New Zealand’s conservation jewels, Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks, via a high alpine pass named the Harris Saddle.
