Mueller Glacier Lake in the Hooker Valley, New Zealand

Mueller Glacier Lake in New Zealand

Today’s travel photo is of the rushing white water coming from the glacial lake of the Mueller Glacier in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand. I took this photo while hiking the Hooker Valley trail while camped at Mount Cook. The Hooker Valley trail is a short but spectacular walk and one of the most popular in the South Island of New Zealand. This view is one of the first that you come across as you hike a short way from the car park to a view point. Just below the view point there is a suspension bridge crossing the river and this is where I captured this shot. It was a moody and rainy day and the larger mountains were hidden by cloud, but that didn’t take away the dramatic scenery of this spectacular part of the world.
