Mount Cook National Park

My second trip to Mount Cook National Park was much more enjoyable and productive. The weather was suburb and no wind this time.

This is a monument to all of the explores that lost their lives in the park.

Stacked stone tributes line the edges of the monument, a small gesture from other hikers to those that have fallen.

    1. Hi Aunt Susan,

      Yes they perished hiking through the park. There are large crevasses some have fallen in and avalanches are common so it can be very dangerous.
