The clear skies we hoped for this AM didn't materialize so the majestic peaks we saw last night were cloud covered. But, just the same, Mt. Cook is a truly spectacular area.Click for more pictures >
Not good WiFi here but I think I can post at least this picture. As I heard another person saying on the path to the seriously good restaurant at the foot of Mt. Cook, "It's impossible to take a picture to capture what we are seeing." We are in awe of this beautiful area. "Majestic" is not a good enough word. So, although we didn't get the train trip to Hotikita and the road trip down the west coast of the south island due to the cyclone damage to the roads, this doesn't seem like a compromise - at all!
