As dusk settles over Lake Wakatipu,
it's party party party in Thrillseeker Central.

the Skippers Canyon jet-boat.

A place of amazing beauty
despite the jet-boats.

A 45 minute ferry trip up Lake Te Anau
took us to the starting point of the hike.

Far overhead, the sun turns the foliage
of the beech trees a delicate green.
