Mount Cook Lake Matheson April 7

From Hokitika the drive down the West Coast to Westland/Tai Poutini National Park takes about 2 hours and is probably very nice, but I drove it in the dark and in the rain. I got up at 5am and was on the road by 5:30am in anticipation of seeing The Postcard of Lake Matheson, which you have to catch early in the morning, standing below the Franz Josef Glacier reflecting Mt Tasman and Mt Cook in majestic glory. But it was not to be.

I didn’t even bother to get to the lake since I’d have to walk for 1 hour in the rain and mud and still be guaranteed The Postcard would not be there.
