The section across the Alps was the highlight of the trip from Christchurch to Greymouth. The photo I have attached was nothing more than a teaser before we really got into the impressive mountains. The sheer majesty of the Southern Alps was so impressive and we seemed to be in and out of them for most of our 2 week trip. I am not complaining they are awesome to look at but once we got to the rolling green hills near Dunedin it was great to give your eyes a rest. Looking at massive mountains is tiring!
