Wooing The Keas

Location: Wanaka, New Zealand

A stay in Wanaka gives us a chance to trek into the gorgeous Rob Roy Valley.

9 Mar 2007, 5:29PM

In 5 months abroad as a family, there are bound to be some bumps in the road. Emily and Chris are having a knock down, drag out contest of wills: they are fighting over the stone tablet...or is it a competition over who can be the most infantile?

9 Mar 2007, 12:58PM

The soul stirring pipe and drum band, leaders of the grand parade at the Wanaka A&P show. Chris, incidentally, has decided that bagpipe lessons are in his future. Anyone care to join him?

Crossing the suspension bridge to the start of the Rob Roy Valley Track.

These bridges are everywhere on the trails and as they sway in the breeze and bob up and down over the churning rivers, add some excitement to the whole thing.

Looking up the valley at the Rob Roy Glacier.

Rockslides are a bit of an issue here. As the boys posed for this shot under the ten ton boulder, we urged them to run if the ground started to shake.

10 Mar 2007, 1:52PM

Above us in the valley is nothing but mist and blue ice inching its way down the rock face.

The reward at the halfway point on the trail: peanut butter never tasted better!

10 Mar 2007, 3:42PM

Moments that make it all worthwhile.

Jennifer attempts to woo the Kea who, sadly, is only humoring her. He doesn't love her at all and only has eyes for her granola bar.

The end of the track and an opportunity to roll down steep grassy hills to the river valley below.
