Photos from New Zealand


Charlie who runs a mountain/ski/climbing guide service in New Zealand near Aoraki Mount Cook National Park (www.mtcook.com) sent us these photos from this summer, down under. Charlie skis, paddles, climbs.... essentially does all the fun stuff we do, BUT he gets paid to do it. Way to carve our a nice life in S. Island NZ!

Winter "WindPaddling" on the Columbia

video
With a nice blizzard going, it seemed appropriate to take a little "First of the year" sail on the kayak. So we knocked most of the ice off the boat, got out on the water and were rewarded with a fun, low-key off-the-wind sail in the snow, ending up with a glide through a flock of coots (Fulica americana).

Winds were light, about 7 knots. The boat slide through the water at about 3 knots. Air temp. 26, water temp 42.
Who are you calling an Old Coot?
