riding high at the bottom of the world

 The view from on top of the mountain

 Hand gliders built for two

A very large Kiwi ( national bird of NZ)
 The mountains around Queenstown
 They should all be covered in snow by now, but they are not

more mountains
the View half way up the mountain--gondala goes up at a slope of 73.1 degrees.  very steep!!!

I wanted to do more pics and a little more commentary but I am having big problems with internet here. so Hopefully this gets thru and I will do one big wrap up later on.  Looks like the ash cloud is going to let me get back ato australia tommorow so I will try to wrap it up in a few days.  Cheers!

  1. Dramatic... Is the lack of snow ash-related, or just ever-increasingly erratic weather patterns in general? Looking forward to "more" (pics and commentary)!!!
