    ... were shining out of recesses in tree trunks hidden amongst moss. I suppose that, if you are going to glow in the dark, you need to make yourself difficult for predators to get to! As we were turning in, a noisy, squawking bird was making itself heard a few dozen metres away. There is a good chance that it was a Kea, the alpine parrot that lives in these parts. We would love to see one before we leave this part of the West ...

    ... its 3724 metres topped off with plenty of snow. Edmund Hilary climbed it and said that by summiting it he had achieved his first serious ambition. We scrambled over the rocks up a carpet of thin shingle splinters, which made a noise like glass fragments as they slid downwards over each other, to sit and admire the view. On our way back to the car, we heard the awful rumble of a shingle or ice fall on the mountains somewhere. Initially, we couldn't quite see it but later ...

    ... view of what was behind them. As we walked through we were then inside a circle of light coloured pinnacles that towered above and all around us. This unexpected scene before us was truly breath taking.

    ... and see the 2 glaciers before driving to Queenstown the next day. It rained most of the night, but we parked at the park office and they had a bathroom open. They frown on "freedom camping" here but what's the harm if you're just in your car? It wasn't the best night's sleep we've had, but it was more comfortable than any overnight flight I've had.

    In the morning, we celebrated with a big breakfast and 2 large Flat ...

    Woke up in the morning to Canadian Valentines Day! Double v-day for this couple! And we spent it doing some amazing things. We did an hour walk into the glaciers, which was really cool to see some snow and ice in the mountains but be wearing some summer clothes! After that we kept driving past Fox Glacier, another glacier town. And made our way into Haast. A really small fishing town alongside Mount Aspiring National Park. We took a drive ...
