Our private room at Quintin Lodge

And for a real bed. This is definitely the way to hike when you have the option.

It starts pouring rain when we reach the lodge. Milford Track was set up so that trampers could see the Sutherland Fall's, New Zealand's tallest. Because of my ankle we get in last, and do not have enough time to get up there. Plus that hike is climbing up and over rocks, a very uneven terrain, my ankle is not up to it. I am really in a lot of pain. Only 13.5 miles to go on an ankle, that I think at the time has a hair-line fracture, that I find out a month later, is broken.
