In which Miles enjoys some impressive rocks in the impressive Southern Alps at Castle Hill.

Castle Hill is about 40 minutes before Arthur’s Pass as approached from the east.  It sits on the first big flat area after the climb into the mountains.  You can see it from the road, and by the time I had parked I knew that I’d spend a couple hours at Castle Hill.  I ended up spending a few more than that.

It’s a lot of big rocks basically.  I think the pictures do a good job of telling both the scale of the rocks and the area they cover.
