snow on the mountaintops

Our intention of going in winter was to see snow on the mountains. 
Going up, we only saw snow on the far Kaimanawa Ranges, which was
a gorgeous sight.


But overnight the temperatures dropped and, on the way back south, the hills 
beyond the Waiouru Plains had a lovely white covering!

So beautiful - I love being right at the snow line like that.

Well, I bet this post cooled a few people down over here on this side of the pond! It really is beautiful that snow. But I have to admit I'd rather see it in pictures than actually.

Oh, I didn't want to see snow right now - I want to keep my summer mood here for two more months ...
But your photos are beautiful!

Beautiful. I wonder if the sheep get cold.

I enjoy such light drizzle of snow. Pity we don't get any here in Bangalore.

Gorgeous photos but I'll take our heat wave at the moment!
