After the 6 hour drive from Christchurch, we visited the DOC Visitor Centre

Then we had lunch at Old Mountaineers Cafe, Bar and Restaurant (located next to the DOC Visitor Information Center). The restaurant had an excellent atmosphere & good views of Mount Cook. The food was good & reasonably priced

It was still cloudy at the tops of the mountains so we couldn't see the top of Mt. Cook.

After lunch we decided to go up the Tasman Valley toward Mt. Cook and take a look at the Blue Lake & Tasman Glacier
