|A nice ride along the rivers in the valleys.|
The area is known as Queenstown and the Southern Lakes. Queenstown is small enough to cover on foot, but the Lake Wakatipu is huge. And it is very cold – only averaging 11 degrees Centigrade in the middle of summer. The view across the lakes offers a sight of The Remarkables, which is the snow skiing area.
|There is Queenstown in the distance! It looked close,|
but was nearly two hours of winding roads away!

|We actually went under this bridge several|
times and it felt like we were going to hit it!

|I guess we are going to get wet on this one!|
|We are waving goodbye to everyone. Hope we return!|
|That little strip of water is what we flew along in and out|
of curves and rock walls while spinning around at times.
