The next day we flew from Queenstown to the Mt. Cook airport where we boarded a pontoon plane and flew back up towards Mt. Cook where we landed - but also had the opportunity to view Fox and Franz Josef Glacier again from the East.
On the Way from Queenstown we learned about how their glacial lakes contributed to the electrical power grid throughout the area.
From the south we climbed up toward the glacial range and Mt. Cook.
We landed at Cook airport and switched to a sea plane.
which would fly us onto Cook and over the range for many photo opportunities before we landed on the snowfield of Cook.
