After our Milford Sound cruise, we ate some ham sandwiches in our van, swatted away the sandflies, and then drove to the start of the Key Summit hike (part of the larger Routeburn track). I had seen the hike on a few blogs and it looked fantastic (look here and you'll know what I'm talking about). However, it was blustery, rainy, and cloudy so we didn't get to see that amazing view. Ah, well. It was sort of moody and other worldly feeling so it still had a cool vibe. Also, we discussed numerous times on our way up how in the world this hike was rated as "easy". Ha!
