The Valley

This is the Matukituki Valley. Before I got there a friend had informed me that it was a stunningly beautiful valley. Clearly, as I shall prove later, she didn't know what she was talking about. It's okay, but I've seen better.

It has a river. My guess is that it was the river that actually created the valley. It also has farm land.

And there's a mountain. It's an okay mountain, but it didn't really do it for me.


Oh, it's Mount Aspiring by the way.

And this is the view from Lake Wanaka, from Wanaka township actually. Now that's nice.

I suspect the river had at least some help from a glacier in making the valley. Sorry, I haven't had an opportunity to be a pedant all weekend.
