Day 23 – Mt Cook, Tekapo, Geraldin, Mt Hutt, Sheffield

A crisp clear dawn and this was the view from the van window. Pretty amazing.


Took another couple of early morning shots on the way out as well.

We continued on to Lake TeKapo and visited the Observatory which is on top of a really high hill (it’d be a mountain in Oz) which is in the middle of a VAST plain surrounded by really high mountains; quite a spectacular view for 360 degrees.
On through Fairlie, Geraldine and Mt Hutt stopping along the way for morning tea, lunch and any other excuse.
Norma had a go at driving for about 60klms between Geraldine and Mt Hutt, which was quite an experience for all aboard 🙂
We have stopped at a Park Over Property in Sheffield for the night.

  1. Beautiful Dad – wish I was there! Can you believe it’s been almost a month since you left for NZ?

    Looking forward to seeing you back home, though I’m not too sure how eager you are to get back! 😉
