New Zealand — 5:30 a.m. Arrival

 This isn't how most folks think of Auckland on a summer's morning, but it is one view of the capital city of New Zealand, the city into which I flew from Los Angeles this morning.

 On the other hand, this is the view I associate with the Kiwi city on the North Island of New Zealand.  Blue waters, spire in the middle of town, a huge sea view.

However, no matter how you may imagine New Zealand, it is this view of the Southern Alps which run along the west coast of South Island that are the most attractive, amazing, wilderness in the whole  southern Pacific region.  I love these mountains.  Try em, you may, too!
