Mount Cook – Again!!

I loved Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park so the much the first time around, I was super stoked to have another friend in town as an excuse to go back!

DID I MENTION ANOTHER ONE OF MY VERY BEST FRIENDS CAME TO VISIT ME FOR TWO WHOLE WEEKS?

Because yep, she did.  And we had amazing adventures.  KAW KAW RAWR.

Here’s some photographic evidence for our first destination – more to come!
