A few shots of a South Island road trip to some off the beaten track places that most will not have seen. From Anatori and Westhaven to Westport, to Matukituki, Kohaihai, Bruce Bay, Nevis Crossing, Matukituki, Wanaka, Glenorchy, Lake Wakatipu, Wairau diversion, Mesopotamia and Port Elizabeth
A misty drive from the beachfront at Greymouth to Lake Brunner via Lake Haupiri where the Gloriavale community is located.
Even greater advances with Robotics. You will need to manually turn on the sound.
In just over a minute the system releases roughly 450,000 gallons of water, sending it 100 feet into the air. The goal: reduce the extreme amount of heat and energy generated by a rocket launch.
This is real lord of the rings territory. Five of six fords to get there which are generally OK, the last one being the longest but all are compacted “under wheel”. Magic place and brilliant scenery on the trip in past Paradise. Try and pick a sunny morning and the clarity of the views will blow you away. The video shows the track that starts at the DOC camp at Chinaman’s bluff and follows the Dart River. Well worth a look.
The Road to the Tukino ski-field off the desert Road. Very unusual landscapes and stunning views of Mts Ruapehu and Ngaurohoe. There is a minimalist DOC camp halfway up this road with absolutly no facilities, but wonderful place to stay a night.
