Mt Cook Excursion in Winter

A recent PRIVATE DISCOVERY TOUR to Mt Aorangi ( Mt Cook) was truely a winter splendour of ice and snow. Recent snow of up to half a metre surrounded the Hermitage enveloping the valley in white.

Our walk up the Hooker Valley to The Hooker Lake inspired us

Hooker Valley Shelter

It was a beautiful day
the stillness and grandeur of the mountains
silent, strong and powerful
The occasional crack of ice
rumbling avalanche
blue stretch of glacial moraine
inspired us
to follow the track
carved by mountaineers before us
