To Mount Cook

From Oamaru we headed inland on the Weston Ngapara Road to pick up SH83 for Twizel. The original idea was to go to Mount Cook the following day on our way north but as it was a beautiful day (and mindful of the way the weather had changed at Te Anau) we checked in at Twizel and then went straight up to Mount Cook on a fantastc evening. By the time we got there most of the day-outers had left and we had the place virtually to ourselves. Return to Twizel was a bit late, but worth it!
