Gorgeous photos and adventure!! Love the picture of you and your family in front of the waterfall. You all are so nice and tan! The kids look so adorable on the tree and those rainbow trees are stunning. I can't wait to get there. Only 2 more days!

Do you ever get some of your pictures printed and framed? Those ones of the rainbow eucalyptus trees are just beautiful!

I like the kids playing on the banyan tree as well. Lots of great memories on this trip!

And so glad to know that you made the trip earlier in the week!

What I noticed the most was that you seemed to be all alone on the Pipiwai Trail, but yet the Oheo Gulch was busy with people. I am just so hoping for that scenario when we hike the trail because it seems so peaceful and amazing with only yourselves! It's liking owning multi-million dollar property for that space in time and so special. I loved all the photos, but the banyan tree with the kids were wonderful, Loved the falls and were those eucalyptus trees the ones by the open field or did you find different ones?

I really appreciate the perspectives you take on shooting your photos and we do a lot of the same shots, but I am using a much different camera than previous trips so it is super exciting! I am happy I have spent this summer hiking my backyard so hopefully that two mile stretch will be a snap. Nice to know it will be down hill on the way back. Loved the family photos and you guys all look so at home. Thanks for the blog! Deb

P.S. Happy that Flossie didn't reek havoc and basically blew over for the most part!

Really wonderful entry in your blog, your pics are great! So glad you had good info from sw and took her advice.

What I love is that your Aunt and Uncle's grins just get bigger!! They are gonna have a heck of a time selecting their pic for the Christmas card! They all look lovely.
