Arrowtown and GlenorchyWoke up to clouds covering the sky and decided it was time to leave Wanaka and headed over to the small cute historic mining town called Arrowtown, which happens to be the first place of Chinese settlement in the land of Kiwis. There are 4 hikes in Arrowtown. The autumn colours mixed with snow covered dry plants resembled a scene whose surrealism would even make Luis Bunuel stir up in his grave. I took a walk through the white frozen forest and I thought that I was walking through the gates of heaven and just where the forest will end, Jesus Christ will forward to receive me. But alas! The place where the forest ended was a place of human settlement. It was such an intense and powerful experience to have walked that forest in the snow. Mind numbing and soul liberating!
