This image was taken on the spectacular drive to Mt. Cook Village located at the end of Highway 80 four hours north of Queenstown. The narrow valley in Mount Cook National Park is surrounded by glaciers and rocky peaks. Mt. Cook, called Aoraki or “Cloud Piercer” in Maori, is the highest mountain in New Zealand and is a truly stunning area of the Southern Alps.
