Mount Cook

15th March Saturday
Walked the Hooker Trail from Tiny to Lake Hooker and back about 3 hours, it was a beautiful walk with views of Muellers glacier on the way up to the lake and there were small icebergs floating on the lake from Mount Cook, got some great photos. Had a coffee when we got back then started our journey to our next destination which was Lake Tekapo. Before we left we went into Mount Cook village and looked round the I-site which had some displays on climbers and historical information of the area. We continued our journey but stopped at a visitors center where we could have bought fresh salmon caught in lake Pukaki. We had just made lunch when a man parked beside us who lived in Nottingham but came from Oldham, his son lived in Christchurch. We drove to Lake Tekapo and booked on the campsite. We were not that impressed but there was only one campsite so that was it. We walked into the village to the I-site and checked the weather for the next day and it was rain all over the south island . We decided to travel to Christchurch the next day.
