Fiordland --> Wanaka via Wine Country

After Fiordland's rains chased us out, we headed back up through Queenstown towards Wanaka, our next stop.  After some white-knuckle rainy day/curvy road driving, we caught some pretty sights along the way, including some amazing fall colors and cool clouds:


We stopped at a couple wineries outside Queenstown for a quick tasting.  Mmm... wine.  We tried Amisfield and Peregrine, both tasty.


The crazy clouds and rainstorms were following us:


But that led to some cool rainbows!:


We stopped at the Roaring Meg dam on the Kawarau River, because, well, duh:


MOAR RAINBOWS!
(that Tim couldn't look at because he was driving. On the left.):


More crazy rain clouds stalking us!:


And then we reached our campsite for the night, the lovely Wanaka Lake Outlet, on the edge of Wanaka (down a seriously long gravel road):
