Winter on the Routeburn.

We went to have a look at the Harris Saddle, on the 22nd June 2017. From Falls Hut, we followed tracks in the snow for about 1km. From there, we made our own for the next 2km. Very hard going, but the views were worth it. The bluffs near the Harris Saddle were covered with snow. It would have been extremely hard to get to MacKenzie hut. The avalanche risk looked high and definitely not worth the risk. A great day out and back.
