Southern Alps

South Island


Brajan, 12

The Southern Alps is my favourite place in the world. The hills of the Southern Alps are like a three scooped ice cream with vanilla sprinkles. It’s like a big white sheet that covered the bright green bush. As you are skiing down the hills of the Alps the wind hits you as hard as the rough sea hits up against the rocks. The strong spectacular southerly winds whistle boldly at the top of the Southern Alps. The shimmering light of the sun gleams on the tip of the Southern Alps my favourite place in the world.
