Around Queenstown

We woke up to sunny skies Monday, enjoying a gorgeous view of Coronet Peak from our B&B and enjoying breakfast on the picnic table overlooking the valley.

Encouraged by the sunshine, which can be pretty fleeting here (Fiordland, the southern tip of the South Island, is one of the rainiest places on earth), we decided to forge out and drive past Lake Wanaka to attempt a hike to the Rob Roy Glacier a few hours out of Queenstown.  The drive was gorgeous, complete with incredible mountains, valleys, farmlands, and lots of sheep, but as luck would have it, the weather changed enough to limit our hike to the suspension bridge a few miles out from the glacier – though still an amazing experience!
