NZ DAY 99
WILD WEST ROAD TRIP: Christchurch to Westport 6KM (Total KM's Walked 1085)
Today we picked up a rental car in Christchurch to explore the West coast for our 7 day Wild West Road Trip. The drive from Christchurch to Arthur’s Pass is typical New Zealand ......winding and in most places just wide enough for 2 cars, but the scenery is also pure New Zealand ... spectacular. We stopped in at Cathedral Rocks another LOR location then onto Arthurs Pass. At Arthur’s Pass we took the trail up to Devil’s Punchbowl Waterfall in full sunlight but on the way back to the car the clouds started rolling in and then it started to pour. Visibility was down to Zero so we decided to head straight to Westport
HIGHLIGHT: The waterfall
LOWLIGHT: Bloody rain
Im grateful we are not walking, we caught up with Sybil and Sven and they had been through some despicable weather. Grateful for the sunshine we did have, it would have been a shame to miss the waterfall due to weather. Grateful for time for my body to recover.
