A rest stop, viewing point along Mount Cook Road (State Highway 80) in Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand.
It’s along the first part of the 55 kilometer road to Mount Cook Village that runs alongside Lake Pukaki. Mount Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand, is off in the distance. A great spot to get photos of the lake, mountains and greenery.
I remember having a bowl of cereal sitting on the hood of the car just soaking in the view. Just out on the open road indeed.
