Lake Tasman

Looking down from the mountain side, a few miles south of The Nuns Veil we were treated to this view. On the lower left corner the Tasman River runs out of the Tasman Lake. Formed by the recent retreat of the Tasman Glacier, which can be seen on the opposite side of the lake to the start of the river, this lake is approximately a mile wide. Towering up behind is Mount Cook.
