Mountains, Lakes and Glaciers
The South Island, the largest of the two main islands of New Zealand, has the most natural, picturesque landscape imaginable. The Southern Alps run the entire length of the island with 18 peaks at more than 9,800'.

Judy: Had to view photos several times and came away thinking how special this area is and that someone had the foresight to protect this beautiful landscape. Thanks for sharing.

Hi J .. Your trip sounds amazing and your photos are interesting and lush. Love the Yurt. And the lambs. Also, your hair looks long. I really like it.

Heaven! Penguins!!! What is the tide difference down there and what is the glacial water temp? A biologist needs to know this stuff! Hurry with chapter 3 you are worse than Outlander!

SUZ! So, this is chapter 3! so I'm caught up :)! Many reasons for the slow take on life here (from lack of wifi to good weather to just being a little, yet consciously, slow moving!) Sunday appears rainy/windy/cool so I am planning to get my arms around the final photos and thoughts and go for the finale! Glacial water temp? I'd say cold :) The only water warm enough to jump in (for me) was the Tasman Sea.but there was a British guy on the bus who jumped into the blue pools and almost every lake! Tide difference? I haven't a clue! Ask me about Bay of Fundy! Let me know if you get the answer! :). J.
