New Zealand - Mountain Sound

Apparently landing a plane on the snow in the late afternoon light was a little tricky so we would need to be in the air by 14:30. It was 10:30, and google maps was giving us a 6hr 30min trip from Te Anau. Time to hit the road.
After a flying stop over in Queenstown to pick up some wine, beer and food we arrived at the runway at 14:15.

An hour later and we were standing in an empty snowfield high in the New Zealand mountains as our plane disappeared back off in the distance. After taking a moment to soak it up we clipped into our snowshoes and hiked over the ridge to our home for the night
