A visit to the Blue Pools

On a mountain overlooking Queenstown in the distance. It was the end of the day, and we camped on this damn mountain for the night. Man was it cold!

(1) There's a few of these bridges around the place. No problem when there's only a few people - but gets pretty bouncy when some large person just strides across it.

(2) (3) Somebody started the practise of stacking a rock on a rock - and look what it grew into!

(4) Ernie cooking sausages on the little portable BBQ outside. It was so cold that I could hardly bear to keep him company. I had on a scarf, beany coat and gloves. Sure enough, we had a small dusting of fresh snow overnight on the hill around us.
