Lake with a View

Near Fox Glacier lies Lake Matheson. Not a stunning lake by itself, but it’s location lends it to something special that features in numerous postcards from New Zealand. That something special, is a reflection of Mt. Cook and the Southern Alps.

The four of us did the entire hike, which takes a little over an hour as it goes around the lake. And it apparently takes you to the ‘View of Views’.

Before getting to that viewpoint though, it was Reflection Island that we stopped at.

Then it was off to the ‘View of Views’. It was a fairly nice spot.

Finally, the view at the Boat Launch spot on the lake. All in all a very pretty spot, and odd colours given the very overcast day.

Then a duck went and ruined the reflection.
