    ... park visitors centre. As by now we were getting a bit desperate the decision was made to detour that way.
    We noticed a sign telling us that a lake was only 600 metres away, and decided to have a sticky beak and see what this would bring us. . Glad we did.
    The National Park we were in , is called the Nelson Lakes National Park and has two of the grandest lakes we have seen for a long time. Stopped at the lakeside for our late smoko ...

    Alpine lakes, and the yankee double take

    A travel blog entry by miller.r.lowe on Mar 19, 2015

    ... 5 day hike but changed my mind after learning about the incoming weather system from auss. (the outback gets me again.) So settled for a day hike.

    The weather was amazing, not a cloud in the sky, and I set out up mount Robert. The beginning was a LOT of step switchbacks up to the top, after a view of the lower lakes near the bottom and some alpine shrubbery the slope gave way to rocks ...

    ... we made for the mountain pass to Nelson and in spite of being buffeted by the very strong gusty winds we arrived in one piece.

    ... from 1873 to 1931. Apart from taking a long time to build the railroad, the trains struggled with the terrain and the railway ran at a loss. It was acknowledged that it was only the drivers and crew coaxing the engines up and down the line that kept the trains running. We continue on about 10 kms and see there are roadworks signs up. Unfortunately no road works - the signs were put up to ...

    ... and some advice on just how close we were to our destination, we continued on. Finally, we got to St Arnaud. Powerade, coffee, water, a cup of tea, more water. Then across the road where we are booked into the Alpine Lodge. From the Lodge we have a short walk to Lake Rotoiti. We Ve seen pictures of the lake but both feel quite stunned when we reach the end of the path and suddenly see the lake and the mountains beyond. It ...
