The Mid Caples Hut along New Zealand’s Greenstone-Caples Track services 5,000 backpackers each year. Those trampers, as they are called, are lucky enough to meet the fun-loving, trail-running, rock-climbing hut warden named Tanya Rinehart, who is the subject of  Whitney Oliver’s film Tanya the Hut Warden.
