On the road again

Cow herd on the road

The road from Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park down to the Catlins had us stopping every couple of minutes (much to Nat’s displeasure) to take photos.  There were scenic winding roads, dramatic skies and brightly coloured bodies of water at every turn.  On the way down we’ve slept in many small secluded campsites recommended by locals.

Our awesome campervan and south island farms.

Outside of Mount Cook National Park

One hour outside of Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park I jumped some barbed wire for this view of the hills and distant mountains.

Leaving Mount Cook National Park.

Camping ouside of Twizel

We asked the locals in Twizel where we could camp for the night.  They pointed us in the direction of a nearby lake, failing to mention how beautiful it was.  Needless to say, we didn’t make it to our campground until after dark.

Reflected fall colours south island New Zealand

On our way down to the Catlins we passed this still lake and jumped out to grab a picture of the fall colours.  Within a couple of minutes the wind had picked up again and the reflection was gone.
