A rest and planning day

After the Kepler, we were a bit fatigued, and Pamela's knee was giving a bit of grief. So we took a day to rest, shop, and plan our next tramp. We decided to do the Greenstones-Caples route. We could access this loop from the parking area on the Milford Road that accesses the Routeburn track. You can go in from this side or access it from near Glenorchy. I think the days are more even if doing it from the Glenorchy side, but the parking area is much harder to get to (and a day's drive from where we were.) For our recovery day, we drove up the Milford Road and did a few short walks in between rain showers.

Why don't the huts have espresso machines?

A traffic jam!
