Southern Alps

The Southern Alps are breathtaking!  Aoraki / Mt Cook at over 12,000 ft towers over the entire ridge.  Hiked up to Tasman Lake to view the edge of the Tasman glacier.  Hiked the Hooker Valley track which crosses several swinging bridges and the valley floor was filled with Mt Cook lilies. Reached Hooker Lake with large floating icebergs and amazing view of Mt Cook.
