View of Mueller Hut and it surrounds, including Mt Sefton, Mt Cook, Mueller Lake, and Hooker Lake, and the Hooker River.  The route to the hut is to the right across the boulders and then down the slope to the Sealy Tarns.   You can also see hikers setting up tents in the boulder field in front of the hut.

The prominent parking area is the Campsite and starting point for the Sealy Tarns, Hooker Lake and Mueller Viewpoint tracks.  Mt Cook Village is also visible along the road back from the Campsite.  

If you are familiar with the area, you should be able to make out some other tracks, such as the zigzag to Red Tarns, the Hooker Lake Track and even the start of the East Hooker Route to Ball Pass. 

This image was taken at the near the base of the route up Mt Ollivier which blocks the view directly south.

This is an overview of Polynesia

Forever has always existed.

In the mythology of Oceanic peoples, it's been there along with Darkness and the Sea.

The Earth came from the efforts of Old Spider, who soared over the endless sea and found a giant clam. She opened it and crawled inside, finding a snail there to share the space with her. She set the snail in the west and made it into the Moon to shed some light into the darkness. Together they raised up the top of the clam shell to make the sky, pushing it until it was wide open.

Then they pushed the bottom half of the clam shell in the other direction to make the ground. The earth was called Papa and the sky Ranga. These are the two first beings who created all the flowers, plants, trees and animals on the islands, and fish in the sea.

They celebrated all their open space by making as many beautiful creatures as they could imagine, but they still remained separated by the work of the original Old Spider. Each night, Ranga weeps for his beloved Papa earth, and this is where the morning dew comes from.

Polynesia means "many islands" and when you see these pictures, you will want to visit all of them. To make it simple, the islands sit in a triangle described by connecting Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island.

There are over a thousand of these islands of surfer's paradise in the central and south Pacific Ocean. It's stunning. Look at the color of the water here! And the sunset... these speak for themselves. Could you be happy in this little house? How about some reef diving inside a lagoon?

Put this one in full screen and don't come back. Love, 360.
