Now Discovering Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand with @carmenhuter.
You’ll get a sense of the vastness and majesty of the Southern Alps as you drive along the electric blue waters of Lake Pukaki towards the mountains and straight into a valley in the heart of the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park. Poised in the middle of it all is Aoraki/Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain, named after Captain James Cook, the first European to set foot in New Zealand. The area was made a National Park in 1953, consisting of 140 peaks and 72 glaciers, which cover 40% of its land. #thediscoverer
