Aoraki - Mt. Cook Sunrise

Sunrise on Aoraki - Mt. Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand, as seen from our hotel room. The Hermitage Hotel there is the nicest hotel we stayed at during our month in New Zealand; the restaurant there is first rate; lots of great hiking; and the views are unbelievable.

Queenstown, New Zealand

This was the view from our apartment window in Queenstown, as the sun set in the west and set the sky a gorgeous pink. The mountains are appropriately called "The Remarkables."
