Wed. Jan. 19 Visit to Mt. Cook

The group spent Tuesday night at The Hermitage Hotel at Arangi Mount Cook Village. Wednesday morning was free time with some opting for a boat ride on the glacier lake to view Mt. Cook; some took a three-hour hike to see the mountain, while others relaxed. They traveled down Waitaki Valley to the town of Oamaru in the afternoon.
