Lake Tekapo

I stopped in Lake Tekapo on my way from Christchurch to Queenstown.  Lake Tekapo is bright turquoise blue due to silt from glacial runoff.  I hiked up a ridge next to the lake, which provided great views of the lake and the mountains on the other side of the ridge.  I stayed at the Lake Tekapo YHA, which was a beautiful hostel right next to the lake.
