I’ve had a couple days to explore New Zealand before starting the next leg of my journey to Antarctica. Here are some pictures I’ve taken over the last few days! Some of the highlights were a gorgeous lupin bloom at Lake Takapo, great glacier hiking near Mount Cook, and climbing some peaks near Queenstown. Enjoy all the photos! Tomorrow I report to the US Antarctica Program base in Christchurch for briefings and to pick up my gear at the Clothing Distribution Center.
