6am start of the hike
About 30 minutes later…
Mist coming in
360 degree view at the top of a climb of at least 2500 feet. More mist than I was expecting for sometimes between 8am and 9am.
Hiking along the ridge towards the hut
An occasional light beam filtering through the mist, creating a fleeting rainbow
Patches of snow at 5000+ feet elevation
A Kea, the only alpine Parrot
I was excited to see this rainbow around 11am as the sun finally began overcoming the mist
On the way down, started seeing lots of people coming up
Back on the ground
The Tasman Glacier
Glacier water makes for bright blue rivers
Lake Pukaki
