Road to the Mountains

Amazingly enough, it snowed on the mountains not long before we went out to the Mackenzie Country on Sunday which, since we're heading into summer (which is obvious by the dry grass on either side of the road) meant that there was more snow to look at than I was expecting. We'd just rounded the corner just after Burkes Pass on the way to Tekapo and this is the view that greeted us.

Han could tell that I was impressed by the view and pulled over without me even having to ask(!) so I could snap a couple of shots on the practically deserted road (she tooted the horn when a car approached so I didn't get skittled =)

Tweet, tweet!
