Home to several glacier lakes and walks suitable for beginners to the expert mountaineer, Mt. Cook never ceases to amaze.

And on the rare day that you see Mt. Cook with out any clouds or wind, chances are you will absolutely freak out over it’s grandeur and pure epicness. (I may or may not have started screaming in the car when I turned the bed and saw what I am about to show you below.

So here they are. My amature photos that will hopefully make you want to drop everything and climb Mt. Cook (or at least hop in a car and go view it from 1st world comforts).
