We got up early to visit Lake Matheson...a beautiful still lake that reflects mount cook and the Southern Alps...in the morning before the winds pick up. We followed that with a hike up to see the leading edge of Fox Glacier. It was a hard walking day as we are still recovering from the strenuous Rob Roy Glacier walk...but we did it!
After all that walking (another 10 km) we decided to make our way to Hokitika..a coastal community...out of the mountains. We left the glaciers and wonderful memories of them behind as we made our way once again on the winding roads heading north.
