“When are we going to Mount Cook?”

Heath quite literally only knew of one destination in New Zealand before we arrived on the South Island. He said he was going to watch Lord of the Rings so he could appreciate the country better, but we don’t have 3.7 days to spare to watch all the movies.

So Heath focused all his energy on being excited about Mount Cook National Park.

Despite the threat of snow, we spend the morning cruising through the national park taking in the site of some of the most majestic mountains in New Zealand. This country is INSANELY BEAUTIFUL. All caps necessary, you’ll see.
