      ... where we lunched while watching avalanches pour off the big, glaciated southeast face of Mt. Cook before heading back down.

      After a second night at Ball Hut we left early for the short hike back to the car. The day was almost too hot to be doing any serious activity, so we instead drove to White Horse Campground to set up camp, then spent the afternoon eating ice cream and spending time in the air conditioned Mt. Cook ...

      Rachel started the drive, but as it got dark her eyes started to get sleepy so I took over as I was still feeling ok. I drove until the National Park and all the way had suicidal rabbits running out in to my headlights! Our windscreen was also a graveyard for flies and moths that failed to get out of the way of Jeffrey the car. We arrived at a campsite and figured out how to register and pay the 10 NZD ...

Our guide, Sam Dup, came over to get our group and gave us a few ground rules before we were on our way (basically, don't walk sideways down steps or you will fall).

      ... was covered in green grass and moss and explained that the glacier actually used to reach that point on the mountain 12 years ago before it started melting so rapidly. It was quite scary to think how much of the glacier would be left in another 12 years time and I felt really grateful to have climbed up it now. There was one point when we were walking and there was a really loud crashing noise which at first I thought was thunder. It was actually a huge ...

      ... walk any further. Right next
      to that sign was a large warning sign, highlighting the death of a
      tourist in 2009. The valley and glacier itself are extremely
      unstable, and can flash flood or collapse at any moment. Even if you
      didn't speak any English, there were pictures showing a person
      drowning and ice falling from a cliff. Yet, there were still two
      individuals who decided that those signs didn't apply to them, so
      they jumped the barrier and decided to ...
