South Island Part 6: Mt. Cook

Lauren Chapman
June 10, 2013

The last major stop on our trip was to Mount Cook- New Zealand’s highest peak. We camped at Mount Cook village, woke up to the sunlight coming over the mountains, and got to see some incredible views from our morning hike.  (Make sure to click and open the panoramic shot below)

Heading back to Christchurch we were surrounded by mountains the majority of the way. We made a stop at Mt. John observatory, where the views looked like something from another planet. Honestly, I could not get enough of those beautiful mountains.

Chapman and I am a junior at Washington University in St. Louis studying to be a High School Math Teacher. On campus you can often find me singing with my a capella group, baking, tutoring or catching up with friends. I am a mid-western girl who loves home, but is thrilled to be on my own big adventure in New Zealand! I love being outside, soaking in the beauties of natures, and getting to meet amazing people from around the world. I cannot wait to take a little piece of Kiwi culture back home with me.</span></p>
