Into the Mountains

Wow, very impressive. What a fabulous hike!

My Soul In Wander


We all have admired how beautiful mountain ranges can be; but wait till you experience being engulfed by them, walk on them, and breathe the air they breathe, and you’ll never think about them the same way again.

Last year I hiked one of New Zealand’s Great Walks, the Kepler Track. It is a 60 km (37 miles), 3-4 day loop track that offers not only a panoramic view of the great Kepler Mountains, but also the experience of walking right beside them. They’re so close you can almost touch them! The climb to the alpine tops is quite challenging, but definitely worth it.

On the way to Mt. Luxmore Hut, you'll be greeted by these majestic mountains. On the way to Mt. Luxmore Hut, you’ll be greeted by these majestic mountains.

“Seeing a mountain from afar is one thing; being with the mountains up close is but another completely different story.”
