Lake Wanaka

As part of my trip to New Zealand, John and I rented a camper van for 8 days to tour down the west coast of the south island of New Zealand to do some hiking. After 5+ days in the camper van and  only hiking on really awesome trails, I was really itching to run, John told me that he was going to kick me out of the camper van in the morning if I didn't go for a run. So what's a girl to do? Luckily our camp site wasn't very far from Lake Wanaka, but we had to be checked out by 10am, so I need to get back and showered by then. I am not sure if the path goes around the whole lake, which I think is 74sq miles, but I did get to run at least 6 miles of the trail and got some excellent views. 

Lake Wanaka the day before the run, when it was a little sunnier.
