Wednesday 27th January
Had a major present success and (not telling you what we bought!) managed to sort almost all our Easter-mas obligations for the folks back home.
Drove on towards Arthur's Pass and found some strange limestone rock formations on the way...pictures included for The Geographers.
Arrived in Arthur's Pass early enough to check out the weather (yey - fine!! Given they have 300 days of rain here that is very lucky) and pick up a map for tomorrows hike. The village is plagued by kea - a large alpine parrot (apparently they are very rare - just not here). One of the little b*&^%!s managed to get into our tent and eat our breakfast - pretty unimpressed with that!
