The Mavora Lakes consist of two lakes; South Mavora (first two pictures) and North Mavora (last two). 🛶🌲
.
The lakeshore of North Mavora was used in The Lord of The Rings for the scene depicting Frodo and Sam leaving the group, and thus, the end of the fellowship.
.
Also, the nearby woodland was used for the location where Merry and Pippin hid from the Uruk-hai.

Days 105 - 111 ..... 2763km
.
‘Who ate all the pies?.....I did.’
.
From Glendhu Bay over ALL of the hills into Arrowtown for a mince and cheese, through Queenstown as quickly as humanly possible, a cracking night spent in lovely Glenorchy, through a load of bog to Mavora lakes where it got really really really cold and into Te Anau for a beer, a pizza and a bed.
.
Highs - surviving the mentally relentless  climbs and descents between Wanaka and Arrowtown that no one mentioned, having a hut all to myself after the day of the great rains and being gifted a boiled egg by a passer by on my way to Te Anau
.
Lows - the cold, the great rains, bog, frost, 4wd mud pits, sandflies, rainy bogs, cold rains etc..

Sunset in a Lord of the Rings kind of fairy tale 🧝‍♀️ Photo 📸 by @tonyedgar.
Mavora Lakes was used as film location for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and one of my absolute favorites New Zealand spots. During high season they get up to 1500 tents here, this time it was less than 10! Without a doubt worth the almost hour long drive on gravel road that it took us to get there.

Fun fact: Gerrod travels with his #nintendoswitch on our travels. Although he doesn't typically hike with it, it sometimes sneaks its way into beautiful places like this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☆
I have also become more informed than usual about new games than due to listening to the @kotakudotcom and @igndotcom podcasts during our car rides. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Gamers gotta game.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Queenstown to Te Anau -
It took me 4 hitches to get around the lake and back on the trail. Short day to greenstone hut where I surprisingly bumped into a few others. The hut was crowded, so I decided to camp instead of squeezing in there as well. Barely slept though, as my sleeping pad decided to deflate during the night which caused me to wake up every two hours to blow it up again. Great. 
Next day was probably one of my worst days on trail, despite a really nice track and pretty views.. My body was aching, I got weird rashes and bruises and a muscle injury from earlier started to hurt again. Forced myself to walk to boundary hut and kinda collapsed there. Didn't feel that much better the next day, so I slept in, finished my book and only walked 6kms to the next hut, where I spent the rest of the day on the lake. 
The next day was way better! Planned 25km to the kiwi burn hut, along the mavora lakes walkway. A really enjoyable walk through the forest. Two hours before I reached the hut rain started pouring down. 
Reaching the hut I changed into dry clothes, snuggled in my sleeping bag, drank a hot chocolate and ate Nutella out of the jar - Happy Valentine's Day to myself! 
Next day I went back a few kms to cross a swingbridge connecting the trail with the road. Walked down the road a while until someone picked me up and gave me a ride to Te anau 🙏 
Half a day off to resupply, eat ice cream and recover.

On Tuesday night Matt and I headed up the road to Mavora to meet with Aaron & Katelin for their engagement session. I hadn't been to Mavora for years and it is an absolute treasure trove for photos!!!
🏔
We so enjoyed our time hanging out with these lovebirds. Photographing Aaron & Katelin was a dream - they were totally laidback & laughed their way through the whole shoot.

We took our new caravan for a spin over the weekend, joining an awesome crew at Mavora Lakes camping ground. 2.5hrs from Queenstown tucked away behind the mountains we stare at every day. 9 girls and 1 boy between the families and epic nature. .
