road to haast

The road to Haast had hundreds of waterfalls.  I've never seen more waterfalls in my life.  Every time I looked into a little crevice there was another waterfall.  Max and Maya learned to find them by listening for the running water.   The road passed over the narrow passage between Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea and also had a view of  Mt Aspiring (another great name).

This photo also shows my growing baby belly.
One of our only family photos from the trip.  

Stopping for a little picnic with an amazing view.
Maya wanted to wear earrings made from cherries.
Max was a great hiker.  He ran on most of the hikes.  When I would slow down he would say "Bound with me, bound with me!"....quoting his all time favorite movie Milo and Otis (Click here and go to 5:40


  1. Heather- That area is actually called Blue Pools. The water is so blue because it comes off a glacier. It really was beautiful.

  2. Oh my goodness! So beautiful. So glad you get to have this experience!
