Cascade Creek in New Zealand's Fiordland

Cascade Creek, New Zealand

Cascade Creek
Location: Fiordland, South Island, New Zealand

More than a year after our return, I am still mining the mass of photos I took during a month-long trip to New Zealand.  This is a roaring glacier-fed stream called Cascade Creek, in the Fiordland National Park.  The park is a vast wild area on New Zealand's South Island, and is a hiker's paradise.  The photo was taken from one of the many hiking trails accessible from the road that runs between Te Anau and Milford Sound.

In case you missed them, here are more of my photos from New Zealand.

I really like the mountains in New Zealand for their rugged wildness.

Beautiful! And I like the bit of snow on the mountains in the background. Kind of gives me an idea about where all that water is coming from. :-)

@ Barbara - Yes, the mountainous areas of New Zealand are absolutely spectacular.

@ 2Sweet - It was early summer in the southern hemisphere when we visited New Zealand, so most of the mountain streams were swollen with snowmelt and water from the glaciers.

Good day :) The foto is lovely but it is actually the Hollyford River, about 20mins drive from Cascade Creek on the Te Anau to Milford Sound Highway 96, Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. Lovely country!
