My 18th birthday

This was the view I was greeted with as I summited the first hill.

I woke early, ground up a wild mixture of fruits and vegetables and took my classic smoothie to-go.

I grabbed the kit and headed out for an early morning fly fish (I can't tell you the spot exactly ;) I had an amazing morning out in the river surrounded by some of Wanaka's best scenery. 

It was super special for me to go for a ski tour right out the backyard, and could only do so because of two early storms that left low snow cover, and a chance for me to ski for the first time ever on my birthday.

I was super stoked to get one of the amazing Queenstown sunsets from high up on the hill.

To get a ski tour in the sunset on the low lying hills was something that'll stick with me, I'm sure!
