We took a short drive from Twizel to see Mt Cook from the West side. After a couple of hours of walking we made it up the right side of Mt Wakefield to see the Tasman Glacier & Thermal Lake – complete with huge floating icebergs. The sky and water where rich blue and clear, the view was just epic, 360 degrees of snow capped mountains and a beautiful still lake sitting right in the middle. It was so strange standing near an ice lake & glaciers in the middle of summer when the air temperature was over 25 degrees.
