The High Country

The best advice I got regarding the weather on the South Island is: If you do not like it, wait five minutes.

N-14-4336

When I arrive it looks like this:

N-14-4170

The weather forecast and everybody I ask agree: It will stay that way. So I go for a walk in the rain.

The next morning it looks like this …

I follow a track …

… past rocks …
