... out to the chopper. There's a mountain range in Queenstown called the Remarkables, and that's where we were headed. The helicopter also landed on the mountains, and we got out and played in he snow! Lynne attempted to build and snowman, and some of the other tourists were making snow angels! After a few selfies we flew back over Queenstown and back to the heliport. Our quiet day turned out to be quite ...

After sunset we headed 50km to Kinlock at the top of Lake Wakatipu and stayed in our DOC camp for the evening.
