Bush Walking 1:15:00  6.0 km (12:30 / km)
Up from the car park to the view point for Franz Joseph Glacier. Very busy with people heading up and back

A few short walks to waterfalls and glaciers on the road to the West Coast. Fun driving the winding road, 50% rain which is ok.

Isthmus Peak Hike
Was that the Grouse Grind Wanaka style,
Very steep and continuous 8km uphill, died after about 5 km and had to have lots of rests (photo stops). Very rewarding views across both Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea, Mt Aspiring showing well.
Not too many people on the way up, a couple of early risers coming down, (I started at 8:30) including a couple of people running, not sure if they ran up, but that would be very impressive. Lots of people heading up as I came down
Tyre tracks were evidence that some people do ride it, but it would be a total slog and I have no idea how you could ride up many parts. Down would also but a little on the crazy side.
Got to wonder about the people asking "how far to the view point" as i was coming down and some only a couple of Km from the trail head, pretty clear in many places it is an 8km each way hike (tramp)!
Had a sleep in the back of the van at the edge of Lake Wanaka
Bush Walking 56:49  5.59 km (10:09 / km) +131m 9:06 / km
Shores of Lake Wanaka, still great weather for most everything
