South Island

I seem to feel like I could stay for weeks in Christchurch after coming back from Antarctica. But I managed, with Amy's help, to drag myself out of my cozy Windsor bed and breakfast to ride the Transcenic Alpine Express train over the alps to Greymouth and back. There were steep summits and braided streams galore on the east side, and green, misty mountains straight out of LOTR on the west.

I took some video from the viewing deck while rolling through a small town.
