17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hiking through the snow in the Tongariro National Park

My husband and I traveled to New Zealand during the end of their winter. We went to find Mt. Dome from the Lord of the Rings. Once we saw the volcano, I went on a mission to find snow. We followed the Tongiraro Crossing until we found snow. I love snow, and find it every chance I can.
