The trip up Lake Ohau to the Hopkins and the Dobson Rivers

Picked a perfect day for the trip up the western side of Lake Ohau near Twizel. All the shots you see in the first third of the video were taken at about 3:30 in the afternoon and the surface of the lake was still without a ripple. I stayed the first night at the Round Bush Doc camp.

The next day I drove as far up the lake as I could until the road looked as though it would remove my grey-water plumbing from under the bus. The lake splits into the Hopkins and Dobson rivers at this point. I cycled up the Hopkins Valley from where I left the bus for about another hour. It really is a privilege to be able to see and enjoy this country, all you need is the strength to endue 40 kms of very dusty gravel road.
