Mount Roy

View of Lake Wanaka and the town from Mt Roy

As I mentioned in my previous post, my trip to New Zealand is usually dominated by skiing.  This year skiing has been put on the back burner and I actually did a six hour hike on Tuesday which was gorgeous.

The Mt Roy trail-head starts about five minutes from Wanaka on the way to the Mt Aspiring Park.  It is a pretty steady gradient the whole way to the peak.  The views start instantly and only get better the more you rise.

I can honestly say that when I am taking in views like these I am not too disappointed I am not skiing.
