NZ/Aus Days 34 & 35: The Home Stretch

Our last two days in the country were spent working our way back to Christchurch via the scenic route (though it could be argued that every road in New Zealand is a part of some scenic route). Here were some highlights:

The drive from Queenstown to Wanake was arguably our favourite of the whole trip. If we were to return to New Zealand, we would spend more time in Wanake and the mountains surrounding it for sure! Hikes, please!

Is this Mount Cook? 
The moment the clouds lifted and the late afternoon sun shone onto the peaks surrounding our Holliday Park. No picture, sadly; you'll just have to trust us.

The quest to see Mount Cook on our last possible day led to many over-the-shoulder glances as we drove away from the region, along with the ongoing commentary: "Maybe that's Mount Cook?" We're certain this is it...well, one of those has to be...

And finally, the spectacular goodbye New Zealand gave us from the air as we soared over her. Now that's DEFINITELY Mount Cook!  ... right?
