Driving in the rain from Wanaka to Hokitika over the past few days. Non stop rain. Hard rain. Light rain. Sideways rain. Sprinkling rain. Thunderous rain. Shy rain. We just don’t get to see the mountains. We see all kinds of other things up close in this moody scene. Didn’t walk up to Franz Joseph Glacier this morning as we would have got sodden and have to fly home tonight. Instead we walked the high tree top walk.
