On the road to the mountains

We had a window of opportunity to see and explore the mountains of southern new zealand. We headed south  and west from Dunedin. Snow topped mountains if you look real close,  otherwise landscapes that are deeply green with the odd tussock thrown in , oh yes and some cows, sheep and braided rivers.

The hillsides are morraines  and covered in  red tussock grass.
