Onwards to Misty Mountain

We did another day trip out of Christchurch to Arthur’s Pass. It is located in the Southern Alps and is a fair drive along winding mountain roads from Christchurch. I let my imagination run away with me and sceneries of Tolkienesque proportions filled my head.

But first we passed a town called Springfield that acknowledges its coincidental relation to The Simpsons.

Then during most of the drive we were treated to some nice mountain scenery.

At Arthur’s Pass though I proceeded alone on my quest as my travelling companions (that is, wife and daughter) did not share my enthusiasm for climbing lots of stairs on a rainy day.
