Lesh and I have known each other for years and when she asked me to join her and Ben in Queenstown for their honeymoon I was jumping for joy! After their intimate family wedding in Christchurch we met up again in the stunning south to create these beautiful memories. We climbed up the Remarkables to Lake Alta. I could feel the autumn breeze cutting straight through my chest as we walked, but it was totally worth the freezing air. Once we got over the crest and actually got to the lake we were blown away. I had visited Lake Alta once before, in April 2018 with a friend on a scouting mission, however, this was such a different experience. When I was up there last time we got caught in a blizzard that turned everything white. We couldn’t see any of the epic rough rock textures that we saw on this trip, it was truly mind-blowing. Not only was the landscape beyond amazing, the sun did just the right things at the right time. It popped over the hill and gave us a soft glow, and on the way down the mountain we were treated with the most stunning sunset. Have a look through the gallery, and honestly, if you are into a bit of adventuring, it’s not too hard of a hike, just do it!
