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!

The View from the Top

New Zealand and the view from the climb up Mount Ngauruhoe (aka Mount Doom) located in the Tongariro National Park. If you’re doing the Tongariro Alpine Corssing or the Northern Circuit and the weather conditions are right this climb is well worth the effort – even with the loose scree and somewhat sketchy descent!
