Mount John Walkway and on to Mount Cook

Kia ora, campers. The Mount John track skirts Lake Tekapo, glowing blue this morning even under a fully overcast sky.

Who knew there were wallabies on the loose?

This was an easy five-mile trek, ideal first thing before eating. The air quality alone is worth the price of admission.

Here's a map showing our last few stops, from Geraldine to Tekapo and tomorrow to a campground near Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park (click here to view map if reading in email). Look at those stunning glacial gashes in the landscape.

We shopped for food today at the wee grocery here. In our continuing wine label series...

I made this picture from the ledge of our Tekapo campground. Tekapo and Mount Cook are part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve and late today the clouds shifted, so we're eagerly anticipating some stargazing tonight and in the coming days.

Here's a sample (click here to view if reading in email):
