Out on the Open Kea Point Trail in New Zealand.

Kea Point trail is an hour trek through the countryside from Mount Cook Village on the South Island of New Zealand. It ends at a platform from which you can get great views of Mount Cook (Aoraki), the tallest mountain in the country, and several other mountain peaks.

I wrote about it and my times at Mount Cook Village in a previous post: A Few Hours in Mount Cook Village. Below are some additional photos from my time on the trail, along with some blown up shots from my original post. The hike provided some of the best scenery I’ve seen in New Zealand.
