One last hike before we board our overnight cruise to Doubtful Sound. I wish we had booked a longer stay in Fjordland National Park so that we could hit all the major day trails. Alas, I had to make a decision between the Kepler track and the Key Summit via the Routeburn track. The overnight snow dusting of the mountain caps and the forecast for sunshine steered me back towards the Milford Sound direction, which meant we were hiking up Key Summit.
We stopped at the same spots as we did the day before and took some comparison photos. What a difference a day makes.
With a bit of extra time left before dinner, we drove toward the Kepler track and just walked along the Te Anau lake.
One of the benefits of not overstaying your vacation is that you’ll want to return, and the Fjordland National Park is one of those places.
