“My greatest skill in life has been to want but little.” ~ Thoreau

On our way from Milford Sound to Te Anau, we stopped along the road to have a walk. We weren’t sure where we were going or what we were looking for, and that is why I think we found this magical place. The forest floor was wonderfully and terrifyingly springy, like it could give way at any moment to murky wetness. And to my delight and horror, it did a few times, and my feet were soaked as we leaped leaf pile to log on the sponge. The trees made gnarled animals and picture frames. Our trail lead to a wire bridge across a stream, and we each took our tightrope walker moment with glee (hats off, Tiny Monty!).
