Rain, rain go away … I’m traveling

Not too many people like rainy days on vacation — even in places known for rain.

I’m one of them.

Today, steady rain since early morning (see photo above) has scrapped my plans for a six to eight hour hike up to Avalanche Peak today in Arthur’s Pass, the highest village in New Zealand at about 3,000 feet. Arthur’s Pass is the highest and most spectacular pass ¬†through the Southern Alps on New Zealand’s South Island. I snowed on the highest craggy peaks overnight! (It’s spring here.)

Here’s the silver lining: I can catch up on my journal writing, and with wifi, my blog posting.

This afernoon I vow to hike rain or shine!
