Some South Island Photos
Photos as promised now that we're back at Terry's and can spend time sorting them out on his computer! Firstly, above, Fox Glacier. This is on the West Coast of South Island and we had some great views once we'd braved the stepping rocks to cross the river (which had lumps of ice floating in it).
This is Al perched above Wanaka and the surrounding hills. I imagine it might be a bit greener soon but most of NZ is still experiencing drought conditions and the grass is very dry and brown.
These next photos were taken on the Milford Road. This is an adventure in itself with many places to stop for short walks or long treks, lakes, waterfalls and wonders of nature. There is also the Homer Tunnel, carved right through the rock to pass through. The road ends up at the famous Milford Sound which is the most visited of the fjords because of its accessibility.
