"This was a crazy day. Frustrated by Arthurs Pass being closed due to the heavy snow, I throught I'd give Porters Pass a shot. With snow chains on my rental, I did pretty damn well, but I just couldn't get past this last corner! Fortunately, it made me stop & admire the view - wow! After spending 30 minutes shooting, I managed to turn around & went flying back down the same way I'd come...and by the time I got back to the main road near Springfield, Arthurs Pass was open again!"
