Along the Routeburn Track

Along the Routeburn TrackI climbed the Routeburn track with two colleagues from school, early in December 2013, hoping the exertion and the open spaces would be an antidote for the stresses of the classroom.  We were 30 minutes into the climb from the Routeburn Shelter to the Routeburn Falls Hut when the freshness and the endless energy of this mountain stream and the gurgle of the water cascading over the rocks caught my imagination.  Why is it that the sight and sound of rushing water quiets the mind?  Bruce Dixon
