New Zealand Adventure - Part 2 - South Island - wesk8
We arrived at Arthur's Pass about 2 1/2 hours after leaving Christchurch.  This is essentially the only way to get to the west coast for many miles, especially toward the south.  It is also the highest and the most scenic.  It was named after the Arthur Dobson who found the route and decided it was the best way to get from east to west in 1864.
