Off to Queenstown

 Up early and rarin' to go: Heather,Meaghan, Bailey & Caitlin, Susan, Cameron and Ricky.

 The  road to the top of the Crown Range - about 10 kms from where we were staying.

The view from near the top of the Crown Range. Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu in the distance. The International Airport at Frankton is also visible. 

Now down onto the Crown Terrace. Still about 2,000' ASL.

Looking down onto the countryside I traversed in the school bus as a kid.
 Truly in my home country now.

From this viewpoint on the edge of the Crown Terrace we have 7 hairpin bends to negotiate in a 720-foot decrease in altitude before we attack the last 18 kilometres of the drive to Queenstown.
