17/1/14 Day 11: Overexposed! @ Lake Hawea
17/1/14 Day 11: Our first sight of Lake Wanaka in the Otago region! Finally some awesome weather compared to previous gloomy wet days along the West coast. HAHAHA evidence of our bad self-timers and selfies. Being narcissistic is not easy at all.
16/1/14 Arriving at Haast around 8pm. Oh how I miss the late sunsets, $2 showers in 5mins and cooking at caravan parks at peace. The Haast Pass connecting the West coast to Queenstown closes from 5pm to 7.30am daily, so we had to spend the night at Haast Lodge & Motorpark. I think we were also running on an empty tank (always!) and had to wait till the next morning for the only gas station to open. I miss traveling with these suckers!
Circuit walk around Lake Matheson promises reflective views of Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, yet infamous for disappointing many in bad weather. Nevertheless mysterious.
