What can one say about Aoraki Mt Cook that has not been said before?
New Zealand's best known and highest peak, it is a magnificent sight when the weather gods smile, and therein lies the challenge.
Despite growing up less than 200kms from here, it took me over twenty years to see it up close - even then setting off on a perfect day (my dad mustered sheep in this area and knew the weather well) was no guarantee that you would see anything when you got there.
This day the weather gods did smile!
