Last week we travelled with my brother, to the North Island which was beautiful. I'll show it to you soon. Today we went up and down Arthur's Pass to walk to the Devil's Punch Waterfall. I didn't take my camera as we have been here lots of times but there was a cold snap last night and the Pass looked spectacular. That's the difference; The North Island is beautiful The South Island spectacular. Anyway I took some pictures with my phone Not as sharp but you have a good idea how it looked like.
Even the foot hills of the Southern Alps were snow capped but as the temperature rose it was all gone when we returned.
Lookout from Bealey Hotel where you can get great coffee and snacks and gorgeous views around at the same time.
Devil's Punchbowl waterfall which is a good climb and about 30 minutes walk from the highest point where you can find several cafes and an the visitor centre.
On the way back we followed a gravel road beside Lake Lyndon and ended up after a long drive at Lake Coleridge
