Mount Cook

MOUNT COOK

From Christchurch, we drove to Aoraki Mount Cook, the tallest mountain in New Zealand.  There are many trails you hike, but we chose the Hooker Valley Trail.

We crossed three swing bridges and ended up almost at the base of the mountain, for some rewarding views.

After the almost full-day hike, we found a cabin at Glentanner Park Centre.  Can you beat this view as the sunsets over the park?
