Dusky Track - Supper Cove to Lake Hauroko
Updated 29th May with original photos and description
"To stand alone in pitch black night, between these great walls of rock, far distant from human contact. I watched with amazement the tumult of the abandoned elements raging with full force until finally exhausted they relapsed at length into the impressive silence of dawn. Truly how inspiring the old spirit of earth can be, thundering thus in the ears of us little men!" Andreas Reischek (written by this bird collector in 1884 after his tent was blown away in a storm above Supper Cove). 
Why Dusky? Particulary as Tramper.co.nz described it as "one of the most challenging tramping tracks in New Zealand"  and it is one of the most remote! Well, none of us are getting younger and as Pickering & Smith noted "it has well-marked tracks and plenty of huts, and a range of remote scenery that would be hard to match anywhere in New Zealand"  while Sportsworld claims it "Offers the widest range of experiences of any track in Fiordland" . Furthermore DOC has now provided 3-wire crossings for all rivers.
