Road to Mount Cook

Lake Pukaki forms a great foreground for photographs of Mount Cook. I could literally spend days exploring view points. The alpine lake is feed by the Tasman glacier and feeds into the Waitaki hydroelectric dam. From this angle I included the Mount Cook Road (highway 80) which follows the side of the lake and leads up to Mount Cook Village a few miles north. This is the main road in and out of the National Park.
