Mt. Cook, New Zealand

My siblings and I hiked up the mountain in front of Mt. Cook to take this picture. My sister sighed as she hiked far behind my brother and I. For the sake of taking a picture with Mt. Cook in the background, she moved on.

Mt. Cook (or Aoraki) is on the South Island of NZ and it is the highest mountain (3,753 metres) in the country. On one side of the mountain is the Tasman Glacier which is 30 kilometers long and it is known to be the second longest after the Himalayas.

Isn't the landscape very pretty?
