A Car Trip in New Zealand

A fun weekend on the South Island

I jumped in the car with the family to take a little road trip down to Milford Sound. I took a bunch of photos, but wanted to go ahead and share three of them here with you. I know I usually just share one a day, but this is a little bonus I guess! :)

The road from Te Anau to Milford Sound is insanely beautiful. After a long drive through a meadow, you come to this small forest that leads deeper into the mountains.

Driving along the road through the mountains, you pass about 100 waterfalls. I’m not kidding! Many of them are buried in fresh green fauna, and you can’t see them unless you happen to be looking directly at them.

Waterfalls in New Zealand

Daily Photo – Navigating Across the Rivers of New Zealand in the Morning Mists

I woke up in the morning before everyone else to go on an extended scouting mission. I arrived around this river just as the morning mists were lifting enough to give me a view into the distance.

    Well, New Zealand is certainly a wonder land of beautiful places and you capture them extremely well. Thanks for sharing them with us. On another note, after watching the world series for four days, I have come to the conclusion the Buster Posey must be your twin. He is the spittin’ image of you.

    Great shots- Im going to Queenstown in December, I think Ill have to go to the sound one day. I wish there were Glacier tours right from Qtown, I think the helihike on the glacier would allow for some great shots.
