T-4 Days to the Hobbit: New Zealand’s Cold Rain Forests

New Zealand’s South Island has not one but TWO rain types of rain forests. One, what you would think of when you think of a rain forest, a temperate deciduous rain forest and two, what’s called a cold rain forest. These are pics of the cold rain forest. Unfortunately, the quality of the pics aren’t that great because they were taken from a moving tour bus. New Zealanders are really conscious about eco-preservation and so, if I remember correctly, there are only certain places tourists are allowed to even step outside in order to minimize the impact on this environment.
