  South Island Gallery / Whitewater / 2013-10 South of the South island road trip  

A week skiing and boating down south with Paul and Dave and Mathieu. Five awesome new rivers for me: Cleddau x 2 (in Milford sound, trip highlight), Monkey Creek and Falls Creek x 2 on the Hollyford, Waikaia (full of trees at the moment, still a good run at 14 cumecs though), Shotover x 2, good run at 46 cumecs, Wilkin (nice heli run near Makarora), Turnbull, plus the best skiing of the year in the Remarkables.
