My jaunt through New Zealand finished up with two final destinations, Mount Cook and Christchurch.
Mount Cook stands as New Zealand's tallest mountain and may look familiar to some of you with its depictions from the Lord of the Rings movies. Generally, the area is very peaceful with not much to do other than hiking, which was okay with us. We ended up spending two days in the area hiking and taking in some beautiful scenery, including some miniature icebergs floating at the base of Mt. Cook.
