Well, we made it to the end of our first day in Queenstown.
This photo is of us at the top, overlooking Lake Waktipu. Our hostel is just outside the lower left corner of the frame.
We spent the afternoon walking around Queenstown, looking at some of the shops and enjoying the town. There is a peak overlooking the town, i'm guessing it's 1000 ft vertical on a cliff at the edge of town. We got some great shots of the town from there. It took us a little over an hour to hike up the trail, then we bought the $10 tickets for the one way trip down on the gondola. Going up is always easier on the knees, so the $20 was well spent.
We should have some great photos tomorrow with the bungy jump. It involves a 4-wheel drive trip into the mountains to the jump.
We'll be staying at the same hostel so I'll be able to update the blog again tomorrow night.
