Image Caption:
The Southern Alps

New Zealand's highest peak, Mt. Cook (3784 m) can be seen at the
upper left of this scene. Large, U-shaped valleys, carved by gla-
ciers during the Plaeistocene ice ages now contain rivers which
drain the Alps. The large lakes, Lake Pukaki at (2) and L. Tuka-
po at (3), are dammed by mounds of glacial debris called moraines
(4). (61A-42-82, 83, 84)
