Day Three

After Milford Sound we went to Queenstown, then to Arrowtown (an "authentic" western town with a historic Chinese settlement), then to Wanaka. At that point our German friends left us, and we then headed along the Haast Highway and settled for the night in a hostel in Haast. That sounds pretty boring, but the drive was really beautiful, particularly along the Haast Highway. We happened to be driving it around dusk, so the sun was setting, and there was a high fog along the tops of the mountains. Simply stunning. Plus! After two days of hiking and camping, we were very happy to shower again!
