List of Photos - Cycling the South Island of New Zealand

In the winter of 2002 (late January to early March), I took a trip to New Zealand to see if I could accomplish a long solo bicycle tour. I had a set of increasing goals to cycle part, if not the entire, length of the South Island of New Zealand.

The following pages are some of the photos of the trip. I managed to cycle the entire length of the South Island from Picton to Bluff, primarily along the main road, State Highway 1.

The construction of this journal is a work in progress. Not all of the pages listed below may exist. The original journal was done as a weblog generated using Radio UserLand. The original weblog can be found here. The photos are referenced withn the logs.

Horseshoe Bay looks like tan sand until a stream of water cuts trhough it and patterns the grains
