As the weather cools down, my desire to stay in and hibernate increases tenfold. This past weekend, I got to combine hibernation with the great outdoors. I lucked out with a chance to stay at the Calpine Fire Lookout in Tahoe National Forest.
After a rough breakup a few years ago, I looked at some photos of New Zealand somewhere and spontaneously booked a trip. My first solo trip! I originally wanted to do the Milford Track, but since that books up months in advance, the Routeburn Track was next on my list.
The Routeburn Track did not disappoint.
