Arturs Pass to Lake Tekapo

The view looking back towards Arthur's Pass.

Long stretches

Big open valleys

"Shadow and Country Mouse" from Bishop, CA...they hiked the Appalachian Trail
in 2011, and are the first North bounders on the Te Araroa.

Hamilton Hut

Huge scree field

Crossing the Rangatata River. The river valley was over 5 miles wide and
took us two and a half hours to cross!

View of Lake Tekapo from Stag Saddle

First glimpse of Mount Cook in the back ground...Fantastic!!!

Above Lake Tekapo

Swanny putting on a great BBQ for us in Tekapo...Great host.
Sarn's friend from the Police Search and Rescue.

Sooo relaxing... in the hot pools of  Tekapo Springs.
If you are ever in this area, it is a must!
The only reason I left? - - - - - - - I was...can you guess...hungry!

Next big town is Queenstown.  About 200 km's from here.
The adrenalin capital of the world.

See you there!
