Lake Tekapo to Lake Pukaki

We finished our coffee and decided to set off before breakfast. This is the view from the nearby lookout of the Pukaki Dam. The lake is part of the Waitaki hydroelectric scheme which we would continue to read all about as we dam-hopped to the east coast. Select the photo to see a closeup view of the swirling water intake areas near the dam wall. You can see why it is dangerous to get too close to the dam when boating, swimming or fishing!
