The beautiful, beautiful Lindis Pass! On my previous travels through New Zealand, I’ve been through this pass several times, but usually on a bus with no option to stop. Ever since, I’ve been wanting to check this area out and now I had the chance! Even though it was a short stop on our journey from Christchurch to Wanaka, we had no rush so I was able to stretch my legs, take some photos and enjoy the views!
On my way to a look out point, I saw a couple of blokes enjoying the views over the Lindis Pass from the back of their ute. They had installed some reclining chairs and enjoyed a drink while they sat and chatted. Not a bad way to spend the time and enjoy the views 🙂
Several people hiked up to the look out point as well. Why wouldn’t they, it was beautiful! What I didn’t understand was that some people went beyond the ‘do not pass’ sign (I don’t remember if it said that exactly, just that you couldn’t go further) to go even higher up. Sure, I can understand them wanting the best views, but ehm…you know…private property?
All in all, great stop. I was so happy to finally spend a bit more time here! What a stunning area 🙂
