Franz Josef Glacier to Queenstown:
Our first turn-off led to this extremely blue river. I swear every stream, lake, and creek we saw in New Zealand was crystal clear. None of that gross can't-see-the-bottom lake water, which is how I like it. Fun fact: one of my greatest fears in life is stepping on an unidentified object in a cloudy lake.
We drove by Lake Wanaka, just briefly, and while the lake is known for its vibrant color, the cloudy weather didn't allow for a very good picture. Luckily, we spent a night in Wanaka near the end of our trip, so you'll get to see it in all its glory in a future post. Try to contain your excitement.
As we got closer to Queenstown, we passed a couple of lakes and obviously had to break out the selfie stick. If we were sending a Christmas card this year (do people still do those?) it would probably be this picture, but we're not organized enough to actually do that, so just pretend we did.

My attempt at an artistic flower photo. I'm actually quite proud of this one.
Greenery and palm trees on the ground with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains made for a pretty amazing view.
Stay tuned for a recap of our Queenstown adventures in the next couple days!
