day 8 ...


4 pages of photos for day 8.  Follow the links at the bottoms of the pages.


Back on the road today.  Here's the giant fruit at Cromwell.


To the bakery for breakfast.  Every town has a bakery.


A drive through the barren desert.


Then stop at a lake to view Mt. Cook, the highest peak in the Southern Alps.  That is, the highest peak in New Zealand.  It's the pointy thing in the middle.


A bus full of Asian tourists unloads for photos.  It's hard to avoid Asian tourists in New Zealand.


More of the lake from another stopping place.  Mt. Cook appears again in the photo on the right.


Closer look at Mt. Cook.
