Mt. Cook /Aoraki
Mt Cook (Aoraki in Maori) from across Lake Pukaki
On a clearer day you can see Aoraki (Mt Cook) from the bottom shore of Lake Pukaki. The lakes colour is due to the run off from the Tasmin Glacier.
There, well the ridge at least. Glad we didn't go to the hut as the wind would have blown me off my feet and it snowed!
The shorts weren't as bad as they looked it was quite warm, it's just the snow went down my boots.
Felt like a proper alpine experience
Scree and snow until the top
good view of the glaciers below ending in a lake

James Cook's boat, a replica
I had read the biography of Edmund Hillary before I went to Mount Cook. He trained on Mount Cook. He was known for being the first to summit Mt. Everest with the Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay.
The cheapest hostel on the island. Family run and a good place to stay.
