Awestruck @ Peter’s Pool, Franz Josef Glacier, NZ

A short and gentle walk from the parking lot (not more than 25 minutes round trip), clicking away pics and WOW, you walk into a quiet and peaceful clearing and presented with what has to be one of the most spectacular views in the world,straight out of a postcard.

Peter’s pool is a small kettle lake or hole with amazing views of the surrounding ranges – Mt.Moltke and Mt.Roon and the icy blue Franz Josef Glacier. Even though the day was rainy and mostly wet, we were lucky enough when the clouds cleared and we could witness nature in all its glory.

Definitely one of the top moments in my life where I realized my insignificance in the whole scheme of things.
