We've gotten a lot done in the past few weeks since we last wrote. All of it exciting, as well as interesting.
We first had one more morning in Dunedin, so we made the most of it with a stop at Baldin Street (the steepest in the world!) before hiking up Mt. Cargill for views of the city.

On this night we tried a different camp spot. Deep in the paddocks of local farms was Moke Lake. We got there after dark.
In the morning we got our first look at the lake. The surrounding hills are pretty yellow and brown but that is the way it is meant to be. Not a ...
