What a great lunch spot with the Rob Roy glacier in the back ground

Today is another glorious day in Wanaka, and what better for Iris to do than to go trekking with a lady from Hongkong into Mt Aspiring National Park.  Destination – walk up the Matukituki Valley, turn right and up the Rob Roy valley to visit the Rob Roy Glacier Cirque.

With the beautiful weather we have been having, the native orchids are in excellent shape. With the Keas cruising around, lunch was had in front of the mighty Glacier – with a few ice avalanches to be heard and watched from a safe distance.

Iris, having dropped off a very satisfied customer is now getting ready to head to Mt Cook National Park this evening where she is meeting up with friends to do the Ball Pass trek.  Wow , the weather this season is very summery!
