NZ Day 6 Journal (11/14/16): After our big hike on the Routeburn Track yesterday, today was supposed to be a rest day. We drove up the 13km winding road into The Remarkables ski resort which stands above Queenstown to get a nice view, but once there we had to hike to the lookout 1000 feet further up!
Clara carefully picks her way along a rocky spine poking out of the snowfield. Although it is spring here, it is still icy and slick!
The view from Shadow Basin Lookout atop The Remarkables is beyond compare. Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu lie far below.
