New New Zealand

It’s no huge surprise that I’m enamored with the landscapes in New Zealand. So, today, I’m posting a new photo from the South Island.

There is a gondola ride that goes to the top of one of the mountains in Queenstown. It’s not one of the ski areas — just an area for hanging out, seeing the sites, the luge, dinner, and this sort of thing. But it’s always stunning. I went up there a few times.

They have one of those giant buffet dinners up there where I took the family. It’s one of those high-end ones where you try a little bit of everything and then realize that you are way too full and bloated… I tried to shake off the guilt by running outside at dusk to take this photo!
