Tasman Lake with a Mountain Backdrop

Staying in the Mount Cook area of New Zealand and another lake – Tasman Lake which was formed and is fed from the melting Tasman Glacier. The lake is often filed with mini icebergs and although they weren’t operating when we were there you can take small boats out among them on the lake.

A perfect spot with the mountain backdrop – and also a dramatic reminder of global warming when you realise how rapidly the glacier is retreating!

Cruising along Doubtfulsound

Doubtful Sound in Fiordland National Park on New Zealand’s South Island.

Wikipedia History: Doubtful Sound was named ‘Doubtful Harbour’ in 1770 by Captain Cook, who did not enter the inlet as he was uncertain whether it was navigable under sail. It was later renamed Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers, although it is not technically a sound but a fiord.

The Road and the Mountain

The landscape around Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand is one of the most amazing places you could visit. From glacial lakes to snowcapped mountain peaks I could easily spend months here watching the landscape change with the seasons and weather and taking photos. And the roads around the area just add something to photos!

Definitely must visit if you’re in New Zealand

Back to the Labyrinth

No need to Dance the Magic Dance, to enter the labyrinth on the Pine Valley side track when walking the Overland Track in Tasmania. But with a bit of a climb there are amazing views of the surrounding ranges and wonderful lakes.

Well worth the side trip of you’re walking the Overland!

Updates have been quiet over the past few weeks as i’ve been on the Overland Track in Tasmania for seven days hiking.

This one features the mountain of West Pelion and a nice little reflection in a pool of water.

Clouds Gather on the Milford Track

The morning of the day that forced DOC to hold hikers at the hut they were at and cancelled an entire days hikers starting the track. It only happened once in the 2015/2016 season and this really was the calm before all the rain fell!
