Courtesy of 50 Aspen Grove this webcam points towards the Remarkables Mountain Range (2319 metres). The mountains were named The Remarkables by Alexander Garvie in 1857-58, allegedly because they are one of only two mountain ranges in the world which run directly north to south. An alternate explanation for the name given by locals is that early Queenstown settlers, upon seeing the mountain range during sunset one evening, named them the Remarkables to describe the sight. The Remarkables is also home to the Remarkables Skifield.
