Mount Cook & Rangitata

On our way up to Wellington we stopped at the tallest mountain in New Zealand Mount Cook and then to Rangitata. If you look real closely you will notice that there is not a single picture of Mount Cook. This is because a sub-alpine storm raged from the moment we left Queenstown to the moment we arrived in Rangitata. We stayed at the base of the mountain and it rained so hard that we thought that the roof was going to cave at any moment, very powerful winds and rain. We believe it was for our sins in Queenstown…
We stopped at some nice hot springs at Lake Tekapo before going on to Rangitata.
A road side stop to see some very cute farm animals.
We stayed in a nice little cabin in Rangitata where they usually host white water rafting trips. The river was closed to us for the next 10 days so we had to amuse ourselves with a ping pong tournament and viewing the local wildlife.

Next stop Wellington.
