During the four-year backpacking trip that Sheryl and I made around the world, we made a six-month stop in New Zealand. We arrived in the South Island right at mushroom season in the southern hemisphere's autumn. Most of the photos here are from the beech forests of the Kepler Track in the very damp Fiordland National Park, one of the New Zealand Department of Conservation's Great Walks, and truly one of the world's most beautiful places. If you're curious about our World Tour, there's much more to see on our travelogue websites: chrisliberty.com and findingsheryl.com. Probably many of my identifications are wrong, so please leave comments on the images to help me correct them!
