This old steamship crosses Queenstown Lake.

At Walter Peak, boarding the TSS Earnslaw in a downpour.

Tight fit.

Everything is dripping wet.

Chris watching Jon steaming into a flooded Queenstown.

We make a fast exit from Queenstown over Lindis Pass.

The clouds are clearing at Omarama.

Omarama Clay Cliffs - worth exploring?

Jon celebrating the break in the weather.

Chris suggests we park here for the night.

Chris relieved to be dry after the downpour.


Note the bone-dry riverbed just to the right of the tents.

An evening ride to explore those Clay Cliffs.
