Mount Aspiring - Aspiring Hut
Aspiring Hut, built in 1946, is a historic stone hut located in the spectacular Matukituki Valley. It is served as the first base for going to Mount Aspiring.
This image was taken on early morning of 6 July 2016. It was the second day after heavy rain in this area, which eventually delayed my attempt to climb in this mountain. The frozen grassland showed the very cold morning, about minus 10 degrees, but after sunrise I actually had a nice hike and climb to Liverpool Hut on this day.
