We do a circuit loop of Mt John and took the 2h lakeside walk down, absolutely beautiful.
Don't drive up Mount John, take the 1h hike up, it's much more beautiful and satisfying.
Full moon tonight, but no stars. My phone can't get a good photo of Good Sheppard Church, and it's freezing cold.
夜间来到Good Sheppard Church想拍个星空照，但没星星，天气非常的冷，只有照亮湖面的明月。
A nice and affordable place to stay, highly recommended. Our dorm room just 4 beds in a room (you get glass door view of the lake), kitchen could get fairly busy but it does have 6x2 stoves.
Arrived around 6pm and it's freezing cold (6 degree Celsius) and windy (26km/h). It even snow for a few seconds.
Luckily the rain stop and the sun shine, but it's still madly cold and windy.
The lake, the flowers and the snow cap mountain highlighted by the sun is a priceless combination.
Didn't manage to hike up Mt. John due to the weather and time limit, pray for good luck tomorrow.
Shopping here is pretty nice with plenty of groceries, bought some lunch and have them near an open space. A few restaurants and cafe is here.
