New Zealand Landscape Pictures
The scope of our vacation, which shrank gradually over time and at each of the many construction projects we encountered, went from Auckland through Tongariro to Wellington on the North Island and from Picton through Nelson Lakes down to Fox Glacier on the West Coast, then from the Banks Peninsula and Christchurch through Kaikoura and Blenheim back to Picton on South Island's east coast. The highlights were walking Tongariro Crossing, helicoptering the glaciers, kayaking with the dolphins and hiking with the seals. What a great trip!
