Mt. Aspiring from Above

We finally approached Mount Aspiring only to be met with a wall of clouds.

Fresh snow in a few places on the peaks.

I loved all the really jagged peaks and spires.

We got close enough to catch a few of the glaciers coming down the face of the mountain.

They had amazing textures and patterns and just a hint of the beautiful blue hue.

The glaciers looked like they were suspended and clinging to the sheer cliffs.


We even caught sight of a very faint rainbow.

Lots of twisting & turning, bumps and rolls with all the turbulence made it hard to get a level photo sometimes.

Not only is the snow fall cool, it makes the most fascinating patterns and designs on the peaks.

Although we didn't technically get to see the peak of Mt. Aspiring, the helicopter ride around it was amazing nonetheless. Plus we got to stop and walk around an amazing lake (coming tomorrow!).

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: I'm so happy the people of New Zealand are so proactive and protective of their beautiful environment.
