The Drive to The Remarkables

I must admit, I think The Remarkables is one of the best names of a place. As for the road leading up to them… managed to slip through at an opening in the construction schedule in order to make the terrifying drive up a gravel road, with no barriers for the most part, winding steeply upward and upward into yet another New Zealand display of mountain spectacularity. This is where I admit I was the second most scared I have ever been driving on a mountain road—the Road to Inch in Ireland still takes the cake on that one.

“This looks steep” followed by “we can turn back if you want” followed by “YES, I am aware of the danger” #doit

In the overlook shots, that’s Kawarau River then Frankton and Frankton Arm in the distance.

Aside: the “no vehicles passed this point” sign cracked me up… oh grammar.
