It was here on Mount Cook that (Sir) Edmund Hillary learned to climb mountains. He left the family bee-keeping business to follow his skills and strength. And, as they say, the rest is history. Mount Cook has many faces, many faces each and every day. This morning it was gray and shrouded in low clouds, then the sun revealed it in a glorious radiance and now we are seeing it enveloped by clouds forced in and over it from the Tasman Sea. The following images are taken from the Hermitage Hotel where all rooms face onto the valley, the eroding low mountains, and then to Mount Cook dominating the valley. Talk about a room with a view!
