It's only after seeing her that I saw the sign that accompanied her.
I don't know if it made me feel better or worse! In any case, it certainly made me laugh. The way she's described is precious and true!
It was a very cold day!
As we drove along, we stopped at the Mirror Lakes, obvious name!
Before heading through the tunnel and then going downhill amongst beautiful mountains greeting us with tons of little waterfalls from snow melts, we met some keas, the world's only alpine parrots. They have no fear!Below: Meet the keas!
Afterwards, we stopped at the Chasm, a short walk into the gorgeous rainforest.

There are hundreds of waterfalls like this in the Sound
