New Zealand: The peak of summer

with 53 comments

Ice on Southern Alps 4831

February marks the peak of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t still some white on the peaks of the Southern Alps that we saw from SH 73 on February 16th as we drove west across New Zealand’s South Island. So there you have an ironic contrast: no snow at all in Austin through the whole of this winter, but snow persistent in New Zealand in the warmest month of summer.
