I am from the Pacific Northwest, where the mountains meet the sea. When I eschew the trappings of the modern world and venture into the mountains I feel as though I am revived by simplicity, renewed by the power of violent geography.

Wow, Awesome route! I wish I would have done this while I was in NZ. Spent a lot of time looking at those peaks from the lake.

Nice write up.

Nice write up. Looks like you stopped at Pt. 1760, known as the Low Peak of Bealey. The true Summit of Mt Bealey is what you called the unknown peak to the west, 1836 meters high.
