We were looking forward to getting back to the forest bit of the walk so that we were sheltered. It was easy peasy lemon squeezy ...

We then flew back taking in views of Lake Tekapo and Lake Alexandrina andMount John and the observatory from above. The flight lasted about 1hr 10 mins and worth every penny.

Anyway, we enjoyed the day and will sleep well after all the hiking today!
