More BEAUTIFUL New Zealand

(This entry is going to be just a few words and lots of photos!)   I am in Queenstown right now, getting ready to hike the Routeburn Track tomorrow.   I have had a superb last couple of weeks!   I have hiked up to Lake Mann, gone up to my favorite Three Tarns Pass (I just spent a whole day hanging out up there!   It was awesome!)   Then I visited friends in Blenheim, and they gave me a great suggestion to go see the Red Hills area (amazing – more like the desert Southwest USA than New Zealand!).   Then I met up with my British friends Annabelle and Dan (we met a year ago in Chile!) who are over here in New Zealand.   We hiked near Mt. Cook up to the Mueller Hut, then went up the Matukituki River to the Aspiring Hut.   And there we hiked up to the Cascade Saddle (and I felt like I was in the heart of the Alps!).    New Zealand has it ALL!  I just love it!
