We recently made a quick stop by Mount Cook on our way up north to Arthurs Pass. I had not been yet and just wanted to stop in for a glimpse. So we climbed about halfway up the steep zigzag track up towards Mueller hut before stopping for some coffee and fika to enjoy the view we came for. We could not ask for a better one, front row seats to the impressive Mount Cook against a clear blue backdrop. Amazing!

It is always funny to stop in popular tourist spots like this with our little van however… Coming back from our walk and seeing the intrepid “Beast” squeezed in between all the other huge campers and tourist buses just warms the heart. Even the SUV’s tower over the wee thing!

We love our van!!!
