I call this 'sweaty back looks over blue mirror lake' 😂.
Shortly after this, a cheeky chipmunk tried to steal my lunch! Seriously though, we were so lucky to bag a backcountry camping spot at Lake Ohara. They have a quota for how many people can access the park each day to protect the fragile ecosystem. The day access and camping spots all sold out for the whole summer on the 2nd of April in 10 minutes! But it means that if you Do get there, you have most of the trails to yourself and its some of the best hiking in the world. Our favourite place we've ever been hiking for sure! Though we were at 2000m elevation, so it was preeeetty chilly at night. We didn't even have room in our packs for the whisky 🥃 (disaster!).
