Traveling through Taieri Gorge is spectacular by train.
Seeing the river below and off in the distance is stunning!
We will pass through a tunnel before we get to this bridge.
I am standing outside between rail cars to get these photos.
Yes, it's cold but worth it!
Here, the tunnel is in view!
It's weird being outside of the train in a tunnel...kinda scary, actually!
Across the bridge...
and, onward towards Dunedin.
...a lone tree.
We're back at Hindon but don't stop this time.
Trees are planted in New Zealand for the purpose of logging.
We saw a lot of these logging trucks throughout our trip.
