On the 21st we headed off to Mount Cook - the weather is pretty cold Brrrrrrr. We stocked up on supplies. The drive over was interesting - we drove through a few snowy scenes with icy trees - very pretty. The Lake at Pukaki was fantastic - then the drive got a bit bad as the snow started to come down. We don't have the biggest car so there was a bit of sliding and lots of going very slow. We are staying in a YHA which is everso warm and cosy. We ventured out for a walk in the snow up to the village but our shoes are not made for walking in snow a bit too slippy Jacqui has never seen so much snow.
On the 22nd we decided to head off out to hire some snow boots and do a fairly easy walk for a couple of hours but by the time we got going the snow had started again so we only made it up to the Hermitage hotel. We did however make a nice snowman on the way up. We booked ourselves in for another night as the forecast doesn't look too good and the roads are closed on the way to Queenstown
