Benmore Dam

This is the view we woke up to this morning! Wow.

After leaving Benmore Dam our plan was to back track to Omarama and travel over the Lindis Pass to Cromwell.  We were lucky to get a site at the Rotary Glen Cromwell NZMCA.  What a shame there are only a maximum of 10 sites in this huge area.  We were lucky to get a couple of the sites and walked into Cromwell in the afternoon. It was very hot and dry with a strong northerly whipping up the dust.
